Question: What is an PDB File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an PDB file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an PDB file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .PDB extension are known as Pegasus DataBase files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the PDB extension, please let us know.

How to open a PDB file:

The best way to open an PDB database file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the PDB file.

This database file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the PDB file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

    I have this kinda old typesetting program that runs in dos format. Name of the program is F3 from Bloc Dev Corp around year 1990. The program works just fine and I am very happy with it however the Bloc Dev Corp doesn't exist any more.

    What I need to do is upgrade my printer output drivers to a more current dos driver. However the HPII dos driver has an extension HPII.pdb which I can open with word wrap but it shows a lot of strange characters such as a verticle rectangular Zero and others plus some words and characters are recognizable in English as the setup characters for the HP-LJ 2 printer driver. So I am quite sure that is the driver file.

    I have obtained the dos drivers for LJ-3 and LJ-4 Printers but I need to know what software is used to create this HPII.PDB extension to create a new dos driver.

    I just need a Little help to point me in the right direction if someone knows.

    I have found the best PDB database for writing PDB database's, it is HanDbase, www[dot]ddhsoftware[dot]com

    it uses the .PDB format for desktop and all smart phones and iPhone, fantastic database simple to use and converts .PDB to text with any chosen delimiter and also converts to access file formats.

    So far I have worked out there are two types of PDB extensions. one is PALM DATA BASE for the above devices and the other for Microsoft Visual Studio and just thought of another one is for Visual Basic Debugger.

    I know that this is an old thread but may be of some use to some one.
