From Just Solve the File Format Problem
- Perhaps a new category for source code. Or perhaps serialization. Or both. Nothing really stops a format from appearing in multiple categories. Todo for the future, I have an idea about assigning a format two categories, which might be called "usage type" and "data type". Usage type might be image format, audio format, or text document format (for example MS Word doc would end up here.) Data type would be stuff like XML based format, proprietary binary, plain text, etc. I need to polish that suggestion. Anyway, I recommend a new category for source code.

I want to make an index article for certain special executable quasi-formats. It would list (or point to) self-extracting archives/installers, executable compression (obfuscation, etc.), executable documents, etc.
- Interesting question... "Quasi-executables"??? That doesn't really say what it is. Altered Executables? Mutated Executables? I don't know how to define or name this concept. Dan Tobias (talk) 17:34, 16 October 2021 (UTC)
