Files that contain the .p file extension are usually program source code files that have been written in the Pascal programming language.
The Pascal programming language was developed in 1970 by Niklaus Wirth, using data structuring and structured programming.
The Applause software application is also known to use the .p file suffix. These P files contain picture files that are created by the software.
The Python programming language also uses the .p file extension. These P files store Python module files that have been converted into byte streams.
The MATLAB program also uses the .p file extension. These P files contain binary-runtime files that are used by the MATLAB application.
