The ss file extension is associated with Scheme, a functional programming language and one of the two main dialects of the programming language Lisp, that first appeared in 1975.

Scheme is often used in computer science curricula and programming language research, due to its ability to represent many programming abstractions with its simple primitives. It is also an ideal test bed for compilation and interpretation techniques since it is possible to write a simple, yet fully standards-compliant Scheme interpreter in just a few days.

Scheme is a dialect of Lisp that stresses conceptual elegance and simplicity. It is much smaller than Common Lisp; the language specification is about 50 pages, compared to Common Lisp's 1300 page draft standard. Advocates of Scheme often find it amusing that the entire Scheme standard is shorter than the index to Guy Steele's "Common Lisp: the Language, 2nd Edition". Unlike the Scheme standard, the Common Lisp standard has a large library of utility functions, a standard object-oriented programming facility (CLOS), and a sophisticated condition handling system.

An *.ss file contains source code written in Scheme programming language.

How to convert file with extension SS:

As far as we know, this .ss 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.
