Notes about the M file extension:

To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps" and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.

The M file type is primarily associated with 'Amiga E' by Wouter van Oortmerssen. Amiga E, or very often simply E, is a programming language created by Wouter van Oortmerssen on the Amiga. Although development ended in 1997, Amiga E still has a large following. Modules are linked with the compiled source code to form the final executable.
