Other Lists of File Types
If you cannot find your file extension in this reference then the following other on-line reference sites might be able to help - but please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to research the missing file type:
- File Types Explained At, the information repository dedicated to file types. This site is devoted to file types, is searchable or you can browse through the file type repository.
- File Extension Seeker, a meta-search engine for file extensions. Provides a search across many different file extension lists on the internet. Also http://file-extension.net provides a good list of different sites on the net that provide file format information.
- DotWhat.net, a site dedicated to providing detailed information on file extensions, covering mainly (but not exclusively) Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
- Sharpened File Extensions reference. Searchable list of file extensions, including how to open files.
- Wotsit's Format - Programmers resource. For every file format listed it provides a link (many of which are offsite) to additional information. If you need more detailed information about a file format then this is possibly the first place to visit.
- Large and useful resource for file formats information and file associations. They also have a good resources section.
- A popular file extension library.
If you are trying to identify the purpose of a particular file (and not just the file type) the the following resource may be of help:
