What is an OS file?
Developed by the makers of ObjectScript, the .os file extension can be referred to files that are distinguished as developer files that contain executable script with a list of commands and functions written in an ObjectScript programming language.
ObjectScript is a general purpose object-oriented programming language which is a functional superset of the ANSI-standard MUMPS programming language. It can run ANSI MUMPS routines with no change. ObjectScript has a number of implemented support for object-oriented programming, macro preprocessing language, embedded SQL for ANSI-standard SQL access to M's built-in database, procedure and control blocks using C-like brace syntax, procedure-scoped variables, and relaxed whitespace syntax limitations.
OS files can be converted into a standalone ObjectScript application by bundling the files into a .JAR file. ObjectDevel is one of the few specialized programs that can open and run .os files. It has a version for windows as well as for Mac.
