What is ddb file? How to open ddb files?

File type specification:

Source code and script file type icon Source code and script file type

The DDB file extension is associated with the Occam programming language. The .ddb file contains information about debugging process.

Occam is a parallel programming language developed by Inmos for their line of Transputers. Implementations for other platforms exist as well. (The language's name refers to William of Ockham, responsible for Occam's Razor.)

Occam builds on Communicating Sequential Processes (CSP) and shares many of the same features. It is, in a way, a practical implementation of CSP. Occam is a procedural language, similar to Pascal etc.

One feature (also found in Python) necessary to understand the examples below is that indentation and formatting is critical: expressions are terminated by the end of the line, lists of expressions need to be on the same level of indentation.

Help how to open DDB files:

This file type is not meant to be opened directly, there is no software that could open and work with it directly, or there is no information available in public sources about opening this file type. This is usually the case of some internal data files, caches, temporary files etc.

How to convert file with extension DDB:

As far as we know, this .ddb file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
