What are QPU files and how to open them
Are you having problems opening a QPU file or just wondering what they contain? We explain what these files are used for and show you software that we know can open or otherwise handle your files.
What is a QPU file?
A .QPU file is a Microsoft QuickPascal Unit file.
QPU files are used by the Microsoft QuickPascal integrated development environment (IDE), a program created in the 1980s for Pascal programming. Part of their renowned Microsoft QuickBasic package, it was tailored to be simple to use and was favored by beginning coders and scholars alike.
.qpu files are created by using the QuickPascal editor to write and save Pascal code which can then be used to generate reusable units containing functions, procedures, variables, etc. that are able to complete specific tasks or operations. These units may then be included in other Pascal programs.
If you wanted to utilize the code inside an a .qpu file in another application, you would typically need to add a reference of that file in your program and thereafter invoke the functions or processes included within it when necessary.
