Did your computer fail to open an ANS file? We explain what they are used for and recommend software that we know can open or otherwise handle your .ANS files.
What is an ANS file?
An .ANS file is an ANSI Escape-Sequence Text file. These ANS files contain the sequences used in ANSI escape sequences. ANSI controls cursor location, color, font styling, and other options on video text terminals and emulators. They get used in the development, scientific, and commercial text-based applications. These sequences embed ASCII escape characters and bracket into the text code.We have not yet verified any programs for Windows that work with this specific file format. If you know one, please use the 'Suggest a program' link below. Thanks!
What else are .ANS files used for?
While ANSI Escape-Sequence Text is a popular type of ANS-file, we know of 2 different uses of the .ANS extension.
The ANS file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an ANS opener may not be able to open all kinds of ANS files. In this case, look through both formats to make sure you find the best suited ANS viewer.
ANSYS model data
Through our analysis of ANS files, we know that one use of the format is ANSYS model data. We have not yet described in detail what these files contain and what they are used for, but our team is working tiredlessly through thousands of file formats. We'd love hearing from you if you have information about the format.
