File type specification:
The PMA file extension is also related to MSX, an old Z80-based family of home computers which appeared in autumn 1983 as an attempt to establish a single standard in home computing similar to VHS in video.
They were popular in Asian (Korea, Japan) and South American (Brazil, Chile) countries as well as in Europe (Netherlands, France, Spain, Finland) and former Soviet Union, but they are virtually unknown in USA. Although the MSX standard quietly died from year 1988.
PMA file is a compressed archive created by PMARC2.COM. PMARC2.COM was the most used archiving tool on the MSX platform. To extract PMA files use PMEXT.COM. An PMA extractor/packer for PC is available too, and it is recommended to use it if you have a PC compatible machine.
