Help me open a file.

Always open with...

In OSX how do I get files without extensions to be recognized by something other than Excel? Ideally I'd like them to be opened by the shell, or perhaps a new session in iTerm but iTerm is greyed out in the Choose Application menu.

Missing Extensions

How do you find out the extension of a file where it has been removed? I think it's a compressed file but I can't seem to get the slightest clue beyond that.
