.SPAR File

File extension: SPAR

Notes about the SPAR 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 SPAR file type is primarily associated with 'Simple Perl ARchive manager'. Spar is a simple, plain text file archiver, which offers self extracting (with perl) or pure data archives. Especially when containing lots of small files a spar archive can be quite a bit smaller than a tar. And, it can be conveniently edited, especially in Emacs.
