Basic information about file extensions
When you open the file, a computer must recognize the format in which it has been saved. This way it is able to display the stored data in a way that can be read by people. A machine can recognize the file extension through the format of the data saved. It concerns a short sequence of characters (usually 3-4 characters) placed after the last dot in the name of a specific file.
Users can also search in a database for a specific file format and check the possibility of converting it to the format of their choice.
