.euc File Extension

Developer: N/A
File type: Extended Unix Code File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .euc. Files with the file extension .euc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .euc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .euc file?

The EUC file extension is the acronym for Extended Unix Code File. Unix is a multi-user and multitasking operating system developed by a group of AT&T employees at a research and development center called Bell laboratories. It is also at AT&T where the C programming came into existence. EUC file is usually associated with encoding information that is typically fitted for Chinese, Korean and Japanese languages. The EUC structure is based on the standard of ISO-2022 which provides ways to project sets of characters as sequences of 7-bit codes. These codes are classified into EUC-TW, EUC-JP, EUC-CN and EUC-KR. EUC files are normally in Japanese text formats and the characters are encoded in a text string like .RT, .HWP and .FB2 file types. .HWP is referred to as Hangul Word Processor Document and used in Korea. RT is RealText Streaming text file identified with RealSystems while FB2 is a FictionBook 2.0 file.

applications that open a .euc file

EUC-JP decoder

EUC-JP decoder

EUC-JP decoder is technology used to convert UTF-8 formatted text into Japanese symbols and characters, and there are many versions of programs where this technology has been embedded to provide users with an efficient method for converting text to Japanese. There are only a few applications for many versions of widely used Microsoft Windows systems that have been implemented with EUC-JP decoder technology, while there are also similar programs for Mac platforms, Linux systems and UNIX-based machines. Code, sequential lines of commands and directives that are programmed into these EUC-JP decoder applications are found in some word processors and text editing programs, in order to give users the ability to integrate Japanese characters and symbols into their documents. Most of these programs that are embedded with EUC-JP decoder functionalities are open source applications.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .euc files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .euc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
