.pet File Extension

Developer: Barry Kauler
File type: Puppy Linux Install Package
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .pet. Files with the file extension .pet can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .pet files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .pet file?

The application package developed by Barry Kauler for PuppyLinux is known as a PET file since they are known as Puppy Linux Install Packages and categorized as compressed files. These PET files are saved in a format known as "tarball" compressed archive by which in the end, an md5sum checksum is appended. The PET file extension actually stands for "Puppy's Extra Treats" and it is used by Puppy Linux 2.14 as well as its later versions as a unified package system. A PETget utility can open PET files as well as any TGZ file extractor and when these files are extracted, the directory structure of the package is projected onto the Linux file system’s root level. PET files are also called pets and act as replacements for the .PUP files used by older Puppy Linux versions. In case there are .PUP files to be opened, they can be converted into PET files if the pup2pet program is used.

how to open a .pet file?

Launch a .pet file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .pet file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .pet files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .pet file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .pet file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .pet files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .pet. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
