What is a .BHP file?

A .BHP file is a special kind of file that is used with a game called BonhommePendu. BonhommePendu is the French version of the popular word game Hangman, where you guess letters to figure out a hidden word before a drawing of a man gets completed. The .BHP file contains a list of words in plain, simple text. These words are the ones that can be used in the game for players to guess.

When you play BonhommePendu, the game already has three .BHP files it uses to get words from. But, if players want more words to guess, they can go to the game's website and download more .BHP files. This way, the game stays fun and challenging with lots of new words to guess.

To open a .BHP file, you can use the BonhommePendu game itself, as it's designed to read these files and use the words inside them for the game. But, because the words in a .BHP file are saved in plain text, you can also open them with simple text editing programs. If you're using a Windows computer, you can use Microsoft Notepad, which is a basic text editor that comes with the operating system. If you're on a Mac, you can use Apple TextEdit, which is the Mac's version of a basic text editor included with the operating system. And, since .BHP files are just plain text, any text editor program should be able to open them, no matter what kind of computer you're using. This means you can look at the list of words, edit them, or even make your own list to play with in the game.
