Thank you :-)

I want that because I have aliased cat to use 'source-highlight' when given
only one argument (in order to have syntax highlighting in the shell) and
this doesn't work for shell scripts without extension nor shebang (like most
system scripts in /etc).
But it seems indeed that many files are syntactically correct but aren't at
all shell scripts (like /etc/inittab).
If someone knows a better solution, please let me know.
