What is fb file? How to open fb files?

File type specification:

Various data file type icon Various data file type

The fb file extension is also related to Gforth, a fast and portable implementation of the ANS Forth language. It works nicely with the Emacs editor, offers some nice features such as input completion and history, backtraces, a decompiler and a powerful locals facility, and it even has a manual.

Gforth combines traditional implementation techniques with newer techniques for portability and performance: its inner interpreter is direct threaded with several optimizations, but you can also use a traditional-style indirect threaded interpreter. Gforth is distributed under the GNU General Public license (see COPYING).

Gforth runs under GNU, BSD, and similar systems, MS Windows, MacOS X, OS/2, and DOS and should not be hard to port to other systems supported by GCC.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete. This is typically the case for system files in old operating systems, file types from long discontinued software, or previous versions of certain file types (like documents, projects etc.) that were replaced in higher versions of their original programs.
