Respect PATHEXT when looking for Win executable #2298

@uranusjr uranusjr commented Jun 3, 2018

On Windows, the environment variable PATHEXT holds a list (;-separated) of extensions that Windows use to look up an executable file when the user enters a (extension-less) command into the prompt. This rewrite makes find_windows_executable mimic this behaviour.

Fix #2282.

... as idiomatic in Windows programming.
