Question

What is the difference between files with the extension .CXT and .CXP that can be converted using the CX-Programmer FA Integrated Tool Package conversion utility?

Answer

CXT files (.CXT extension) are created when data from the older Support Software is imported into the CX-Programmer. CXT files are saved in text format, which can be easily read by the CX-Programmer and other utilities and applications.

Files that were created with the CX-Programmer are saved as CXP files (.CXP extension).
The contents of CXP and CXT files are the same, but CXP files are compressed binary files.
CXP files have a smaller file size allowing them to be easily saved on disks, and they can be processed at high speed.
