List of RISC OS filetypes

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, 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
