File Extension EAS

The file extension EAS is associated with three different programs and applications. The most common association is RSLogix, but the file extension can also be created with OS/2 and EAS 2004. EAS files contain data and information related to the program that created the file.

If the file extension EAS is related to RSLogix, it is a data file type that contains logic information for Rockwell processors. The contents include symbols, descriptions, and other elements used with documentation for controllers. RSLogix is a logic programming application produced by Rockwell Automation that helps to save development time on projects created with IEC-1131 compliant ladder logic.

EAS files created for use with OS/2 are a system file type that contains commands and instructions for the installation and functioning of various programs on the OS/2 operating system. It is an operating system developed by International Business Machines (IBM). OS/2 support was discontinued in 2006.

If the EAS file extension is associated with EAS 2004, the file is a database file type that contains information pertinent to the Applicant Reference Database, which is a primary database used by UCAS. UCAS is the main organization that processes applications and documents for undergraduate education in the United Kingdom.

How to Open EAS Files

If the file extension EAS is related to RSLogix and you use Windows, you can open the files using RSLogix 5, which is available on the Rockwell Automation website. If the EAS files are in a programming language, they are text-based and can be opened and viewed using any text editing program. For a Windows-based PC, you can open EAS files with WordPad, Notepad, or Microsoft Word. For Mac OS X, you can open EAS files using Apple TextEdit, TextMate, Apple Pages, or Microsoft Word. For the Linux operating system, EAS files can be opened using AbiWord, gEdit, OpenOffice Writer, or Vim.

If the EAS files are related to OS/2, you should open them using the OS/2 operating system. The operating system is basically obsolete, so you would need a PC that is already equipped with the system in order to access and open this type of EAS file.

EAS file extensions that are used with EAS 2004 Application Reference Database must be accessed using the UCAS database program. If the EAS file was created with EAS 2004, depending upon the contents of the file, you may be able to open them using a text editing application such as Notepad or WordPad for Windows, Apple TextEdit for Mac, or gEdit and Nano Editor for Linux.
