What are the Used File Extensions
Have you ever been trying to choose a new file extension? Well, look no longer...

A gem website I found a while ago that seemed to take ages to find was the following:[^]

It keeps up-to-date records of not just existing file extensions but also what programs use them and descriptions of the file types and how common they are. This means you can decide whether to use the same file extension if it's rare or search different file extensions till you find one that doesn't exist. :)

Happy choosing! ;P

Ed Nutting
United Kingdom United Kingdom

I am Edward Nutting, born March 1996 and I am currently a Computer Science and Electronic Engineering undergraduate at the University of Bristol, UK. I've been self-teaching programming since I was eight years old and have dabbled in many different areas from web development (where I had my own advertising startup) to low level operating system stuff (my current project Fling OS).

The articles and code on this profile are some of my early work (from when I was aged about 13 to 16) but despite my young age, it has been well received by CodeProject users. My more recent work has been for companies or on projects hosted on GitHub, CodePlex or BitBucket.

I keep an eye on many things techy and am open to any and all ideas, so please feel free to contact me if you think I can help! Smile | :)
