H86 file extension - CP/M data
What is h86 file? How to open h86 files?
File type specification:
The h86 file extension is associated with the CP/M operating system developed by Digital Research, Inc.
CP/M (Control Program for Microcomputers) is an operating system originally created for Intel 8080/85 based microcomputers by Gary Kildall of Digital Research, Inc.
Initially confined to single tasking on 8-bit processors and no more than 64 kilobytes of memory, later versions of CP/M added multi-user variations, and were migrated to 16-bit processors.
The h86 file stores some kind of data used by CP/M.
This h86 file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.
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.
The default software associated to h86 file type:
Company or developer:
An operating system for 8-bit computers. It looks rather like DOS to use this is hardly surprising because DOS was copied from CP/M in about 1980.
CP/M was developed by Dr. Gary Kildall from Digital Research. CP/M as a first system used standard 8.3 (8 characters for file name + 3 characters for file extension used to identify file type) naming of files. Killdall can be considered as father of file extensions.
