    opening a file type: File

      Hi all,

      I have to open a simple file for editing. Its a simple file containing some text though its type is unknown. When I click it, it asks for program to open with. It opens
      with both notepad & word pad. When I checks its properties, its type is written 'type of file: File'. Otherwise, its just a simple text file. I am using windows xp.
      I will be very thankful if someone tells me how could I open this file. This may be an irrelevant question on Java forum but since here, a lot of experienced people, can I use same method(I mean the one which someone will tell me now) to open the file in a C program that is for java.

      Thanks a lot in advance for any kind of help......
