DRAW file extension - Acorn vector draw file

What is draw file? How to open draw files?

File type specification:

Vector graphic file type icon Vector graphic file type

The draw file extension is related to Draw, a drawing program for Acorn/Risc operating system.

The draw file is a vector format similar to Windows WMF and SVG vector-based format.

Extensions used to map this file come in two varieties. The first is a word describing the file - in this case DRAW which is DRW in the 8.3 parlance.

The second way of mapping the file is to use a literal form of the RISC OS filetype system. In this, three bytes provide a range of possible file types from &000 to &FFF (there are no extensions, just "type" metadata). In this case, Acorn DrawFiles would be given the extension AFF, because the file is type &AFF, or 0xAFF, $HAFF.
