File type specification:

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

The A file extension is associated with Ada, is a structured, statically typed, imperative, and object-oriented high-level computer programming language based on Pascal. It was originally designed by a team led by Jean Ichbiah of CII Honeywell Bull under contract to the United States Department of Defense during 1977–1983 to supersede the hundreds of programming languages then used by the US Department of Defense (DoD).

Ada is strongly typed and compilers are validated for reliability in mission-critical applications, such as avionics software. Ada is an international standard, the current version (known as Ada 2005) is defined by joint ISO/ANSI standard.

Help how to open A files:

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 file with extension A:

As far as we know, this .a 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.
