What is a prn file and how do I open a prn file?

Files in the PRN format are generic files that are created by choosing “Print to File” within the Print dialog box. Files in this format may contain images, text, charts, tables and other content to be printed. Accompanied by this are the instructions sent to the printer such as the printer tray to use, the number of pages to printed out, and other relevant data. Such files are also similar to a PostScript (PS) file. PRN files can be printed in the Mac OS X by simply clicking and dragging the file to be printed out to the printer icon located in the desktop. To print such files in Windows, the user shall right-click the file and selecting "Microsoft Office Document Imaging". Another option would be to open PRN files through Windows’ command line by simply running it through the Start Menu “Run”. Manually opening and converting such file is not advised as it may damage or corrupt the files .
