    DESCRIPTION

           It  is  customary to indicate the contents of a file with the file suf-
           fix, which consists of a period, followed by one or more letters.  Many
           standard  utilities,  such as compilers, use this to recognize the type
           of file they are dealing with.  The make(1) utility is driven by  rules
           based on file suffix.
    
           Following is a list of suffixes which are likely to be found on a Linux
           system.
