List of RISC OS filetypes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This is a sub-article to RISC OS.

RISC OS filetypes use metadata to distinguish file formats. Some common file formats from other systems are mapped to filetypes by the MimeMap module.[1] Such mapping was previously handled by DosMap.[1]

The MimeMap module maps RISC OS filetypes to and from MIME content types, dotted filename extensions and Apple's Uniform Type Identifiers.[2][3]

Requests for new filetype allocations for all RISC OS versions are handled centrally by RISC OS Open.[4]

RISC OS filetypes[edit]

Filetypes were originally classified by Acorn into distinct ranges:

Hexadecimal range Designation Use
Start End
000
0FF
User Unallocated[5]
100
3FF
Non-commercial software Allocated[5]
400
9FF
Commercial software Allocated[5]
A00
AFF
Acorn Reserved[5]
B00
DFF
Commercial software Allocated[5]
E00
FFF
Generic data Allocated[5]

User[edit]

This range of filetypes was intended for personal use in closed systems, not for general distribution. Nevertheless, many programs using these types were distributed, especially as Public-domain software. Consequently there are many clashes.
