More information:
This project demonstrates a simple approach to creating a custom file type. In the example provided, a custom file type is created around a serializable class that is used as a data container holding all of the elements necessary to support an application designed to interact with the defined file type. A separate module is used to serialize and deserialize files of this user defined file type.
