List of File Formats

This is a list of file formats organized by type, as can be found on computers. Filename extensions are usually noted in parentheses if they differ from the format name or abbreviation. In theory, using the basic Latin alphabet (A–Z) and an extension of up to three single-cased letters, 18,279 combinations can be made (263+262+261+260). When other acceptable characters are accepted, the maximum number is increased (very possibly to a number consisting of at least six digits). Many operating systems do not limit filenames to a single extension shorter than 4 characters, like what was common with some operating systems that supported the FAT file system. Examples of operating systems that don't have such a small limit include Unix-like systems. Also, Microsoft Windows NT, 95, 98, and Me don't have a three character limit on extensions for 32-bit or 64-bit applications on file systems other than pre-Windows 95/Windows NT 3.5 versions of the FAT file system. Some filenames are given extensions longer than three characters.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list and/or file:

    The advice of their elders to young men is very apt to be as unreal as a list of the hundred best books.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (1841–1935)

    Every morning I woke in dread, waiting for the day nurse to go on her rounds and announce from the list of names in her hand whether or not I was for shock treatment, the new and fashionable means of quieting people and of making them realize that orders are to be obeyed and floors are to be polished without anyone protesting and faces are to be made to be fixed into smiles and weeping is a crime.
    Janet Frame (b. 1924)

    Probably nothing in the experience of the rank and file of workers causes more bitterness and envy than the realization which comes sooner or later to many of them that they are “stuck” and can go no further.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
