MDF file extension - Cisco IOS Embedded Menu Manager menu definition file format
What is mdf file? How to open mdf files?
File type specification:
The mdf file extension is associated with Cisco IOS Embedded Menu Manager (EMM). Cisco IOS (originally Internetwork Operating System) is a software used on the vast majority of Cisco Systems routers and current Cisco network switches. (Earlier switches ran CatOS.) IOS is a package of routing, switching, internetworking and telecommunications functions tightly integrated with a multitasking operating system. The first IOS was written by William Yeager.
The EMM supersedes the functionality of the menu global configuration command and provides a versatile multi-level menu system. It also supports wizards through which the operator can enter parameters that are used by the menu code (typically implemented in Tcl) to execute complex actions.
The mdf files are used for menu definition data. The menu definition is stored in XML format in a file residing in flash (or any other local file system) or downloaded through any file transfer method supported by Cisco IOS. The menu definition has to be a valid XML document encoded in UTF-8.
