eps The legacy EPS format or encapsulated postscript file format was developed as a document interchange format by Adobe systems in 1992 to facilitate cross platform importing and exporting of vector graphical documents between supporting applications and documents. The EPS file is commonly associated with Adobe illustrator and other applications that support the postscript language. The EPS format supports vector graphics, bitmap images, as well as text but is more commonly used for graphic representation. It is worth noting that EPS files exist as final-form representations allowing minimal editing once created. The exception to this is the support of a few transformation operation such as rotation, scaling, and clipping. An EPS file is usually produced to be included in other documents such as text documents.
sxw StarOffice, otherwise known as Oracle Open Office, was a proprietary office suite initially released in 1985 and developed by Sun Microsystems before being acquired by Oracle. Prior to adopting the Open Document XML file format, the suite had its own proprietary components and filename extensions for word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, databases, and drawing. The .sxw filename extension was one such filename extension associated with the native file format of documents authored by the Star Office Writer (a word processor) application version 6 and above. Prior to this version, the filename extension .sdw was used.
