AFF file extension - Acorn vector draw

What is aff file? How to open aff files?

File type specification:

Vector graphic file type icon Vector graphic file type

The aff file extension is associated with the Acorn RiscOS, graphic application Draw.

The aff file contains draw similar to Windows WMF and SVG vector-based format.

Extensions used to map this file come in two varieties. The first is a word describing the file - in this case draw which is drw in the 8.3 parlance.

The second way of mapping the file is to use a literal form of the RISC OS filetype system.

In this, three bytes provide a range of possible file types from &000 to &FFF (there are no extensions, just "type" metadata). In this case, Acorn DrawFiles would be given the extension aff because the file is type &AFF, or 0xAFF, $HAFF.
