File type specification:

Source code and script file type icon Source code and script file type

The pro file extension is also used for source codes written in Interactive Data Language, a programming language used primarily for data analysis.

IDL is vectorized, numerical, and interactive, and is commonly used for interactive processing of large amounts of data (including image processing) in such areas of science, such as astronomy and medical imaging.

IDL was created by Visual Information Solution and is frequently used in their programs. 

Note: There also exist a PV-Wave programming language which shares roots with IDL and both are closely related. PV-Wave language also uses file extension PRO for one of their source code files, so called procedures. Although these format are probably not compatible, they might share the same purpose.

This pro 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.
