SUN file extension - Sun raster bitmap image file

What is sun file? How to open sun files?

File type specification:

Bitmap image file type icon Bitmap image file type

sun file icon: sun filetype icon

The SUN file extension is associated with the Sun raster bitmap image file format.

Sun Raster files are a bitmap storage format developed by Sun Microsystems. The format is well supported on Sun workstations, but is less widely supported elsewhere.

The files can store bitmaps at a variety of color depths: monochrome, 8-bit gray scale, 256 color with a palette, 24-bit TrueColor or 32-bit TrueColor. Additionally the data in the file can be stored in either of two bytes orders, and the bitmap may either by not compressed or compressed using a Run-length Compression scheme.

Please Note: As there is a wide variety of possible options in this format, some applications may not support (or read) all possible variations of this 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.
