What is a .MARKDN file?

The file extension .MARKDN is used for Markdown files. Markdown is a simple way to format text using plain text. This means you can add things like bold text, lists, and headers without needing special software. A file with the .MARKDN extension might be named README.markdn, which is often used to provide important information for software development projects.

To view or edit a .MARKDN file, you can use several different programs: - **GNU Emacs**: This is a very flexible and powerful text editor that can handle Markdown files. - **Microsoft Notepad**: This is a basic text editor included with Windows operating systems. It can open and edit .MARKDN files, but it won't show the formatted text. - **MacroMates TextMate**: This is a text editor for macOS that provides more features than a basic text editor. - **Apple TextEdit**: This is a text editor included with macOS. It can open and edit Markdown files, but like Notepad, it won't display the formatted text.

While .MARKDN is a valid extension for Markdown files, it's less common than .MARKDOWN or .MD. These other extensions are used more frequently but serve the same purpose.
