WhatFormat is a small but practical file analyzer. This application looks at the initial bytes of one file and deciphers the type of format of the file. The first bytes contain details about the format that is used.
Whenever you receive a file from someone or the Internet and you are not sure of its contents, WhatFormat can tell you something about it just by reading the signature and magic numbers of the file in question.
You may wonder why some files can not be opened in your favorite application. This is where Whatormat comes in. It will show you the Version Needed to help you in what formats to avail of. You can also rename the file for easier distinction.
