There are many file formats for various uses.

Determine file format Edit

You can normally determine the file format on the extension of the file, which is everything after the last dot.

If a file has an incorrect or missing extension, you can use the Linux program file. It takes the filename as an argument and returns the type of file it detects it to be.
