File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
If you have additional information about the LOCAL file format or software that uses files with the LOCAL suffix, please do get in touch - we would love hearing from you.
