PRG File Format

Program source files (dBase IV, Clipper 5, and Microsoft FoxPro)

PRG files are associated with several different applications, but the most prominent one is Microsoft’s Visual FoxPro programming environment. FoxPro’s origins lie in the xBase class of programming language, whose syntax is based on the dBase programming language. Other members of xBase include Clipper, which also uses the PRG file format.

In the past, the Atari ST and Commodore PET/VIC20/64/128 computers used PRG files for running programs, and the PRG format was associated with PC-DMIS metrology software, among other obscure applications.
