What is 4 file? How to open 4 files?

File type specification:

Document file type icon Document file type

The 4 file extension is associated with the ROFF the Unix program that allows users to formatting texts. The .4 file stores unformatted manual page. It is also compatible with NROFF, TROFF or GROFF.

Help how to open:

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:

As far as we know, this .4 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.
