What is w file? How to open w files?
File type specification:
The w file extension is associated with the CWEB documenting system for Unix and Unix-based operating systems.
CWEB is a version of WEB for documenting C, C++, and Java programs.
WEB was adapted to C by Silvio Levy in 1987, and since then both Knuth and Levy have revised and enhanced the system in many ways, notably to support C++ and ANSI C.
Thus CWEB combines TeX with today's most widely used professional programming languages.
This w 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.
