When creating a computer program, programmers create parts of the program in various files. There are a number of file types associated with programming, including one type that uses the .src file extension.
A file with the .src file extension is known as a source code file.
A source code .src file contains the instructions that a computer follows to complete a program. The .src file extension serves as a marker to the computer, signifying the purpose of the file.
Types of Languages
A number of different programming languages use .src files, including C++, Visual Basic, Fortran, Python, Ruby, and C#.
When all the files for a program are complete, a compiler software program is used to put all the files, including the .src source code files, together into a finished product.
Software programs that can open and compile .src files include Apple Xcode and Microsoft Visual Studio. You can also open or edit a .src file with a text editor program like Notepad or Wordpad.
