=head1 NAME

exetype - Change executable subsystem type between "Console" and "Windows"

=head1 SYNOPSIS

        C:\perl\bin> copy perl.exe guiperl.exe
        C:\perl\bin> exetype guiperl.exe windows

=head1 DESCRIPTION

This program edits an executable file to indicate which subsystem the
operating system must invoke for execution.

You can specify any of the following subsystems:

=over

=item CONSOLE

The CONSOLE subsystem handles a Win32 character-mode application that
use a console supplied by the operating system.

=item WINDOWS

The WINDOWS subsystem handles an application that does not require a
console and creates its own windows, if required.
