Opening PRM files

Did your computer fail to open a PRM file? We explain what PRM files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PRM files.

What is a PRM file?

The PRM file extension is commonly used in files that are distinguished as parameter files used in programming. The .prm files are
considered as settings files. This is because they contain features that are utilized to input data parameters in various programs
and applications. These .prm files are significant components of a program, allowing the program to set the factors, conditions, and
limit that defines its system or its operation.

The key - value structure is being used in.prm files, enabling the file to contain specific parameter settings, that will, in turn,
become the instructions followed by the program.

P300 Classifier GUI, GSAS, CodeWarrior, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) operating system installer, IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimization
Studio, and Gurobi Optimizer are some of the applications that use .prm files in their systems. GSAS opens on Windows, MAC as well as
in Linux. The Gurobi Optimizer also runs on Windows, MAC and Linux.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
