File Formats

Modern computers run a myriad of software applications, and most of these software applications allow for the import or export of files or data. The structure of these files varies from one application to the next, so a variety of standard file formats has arisen to make it easier to identify the type of data involved. Use Wolfram|Alpha to explore many different file formats, including the Amazon Kindle file format (.azw), the standard comma-separated value text file format (.csv), the MP3 file format used for audio, the JPG file format often used for images on the web and many more.
