No, it's called "texdoc" everywhere.  Only antiquated systems can't
distinguish between "a" and "A".

On Macintoys you can configure whether file names are supposed to be
case sensitive or not.  By default they are case insensitive.

But the real name is "texdoc" and you are always on the safe side if
you invoke it as "texdoc".

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
