File type specification:

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

The PRO file extension is also used for source codes written in Interactive Data Language, a programming language used primarly for data analysis.

IDL is vectorized, numerical, and interactive, and is commonly used for interactive processing of large amounts of data (including image processing) in such areas of science, such as astronomy and medical imaging.

IDL was created by Visual Information Solution and is frequently used in their programs. 

Note: There also exist a PV-Wave programming language which shares roots with IDL and both are closely related. PV-Wave language also uses file extension PRO for one of their source code files, so called procedures. Although these format are probably not compatible, they might share the same purpose.
