RNG file extension - RELAX NG source code file

What is rng file? How to open rng files?

File type specification:

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

The RNG file extension is associated with the RELAX NG schema language. The .rng file stores source code.

RELAX NG is a schema language for XML. The key features of RELAX NG are that it:

  • is simple
  • is easy to learn
  • has both an XML syntax and a compact non-XML syntax
  • does not change the information set of an XML document
  • supports XML namespaces
  • treats attributes uniformly with elements so far as possible
  • has unrestricted support for unordered content
  • has unrestricted support for mixed content
  • has a solid theoretical basis
  • can partner with a separate datatyping language (such W3C XML Schema Datatypes)

Help how to open:

Use any text editor to view content of the .rng files.

How to convert:

As far as we know, this .rng file type can't be converted to any other file format. This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
