ps file icon:
The ps file extension is typically associated with Adobe PostScript, a dynamically typed concatenative programming language, best known for its use as a page description language in the electronic and desktop publishing areas. Once the de facto standard for electronic distribution of final documents meant for publication, PostScript is steadily being supplanted in this area by one of its own descendants, the Portable Document Format (PDF).
You may occasionally encounter files containing a stream of PostScript data. These files may typically be sent directly to a PostScript compatible Printer for printing.
More commonly, you may encounter Encapsulated PostScript files (.eps) which typically contain a section of a page or an individual graphic.
