What is a .SUN file?

A .SUN file is a type of image file specifically used and created by Sun Microsystems. This file format is known as Sun Raster Graphic, which is a bitmap image format. Bitmap images are made up of pixels arranged in a grid, each pixel storing color information. The .SUN file format is proprietary, meaning it was developed and is owned by Sun Microsystems.

These files are commonly used on computers that run the SunOS operating system, a system primarily used in workstations and servers developed by Sun Microsystems. The .SUN file typically contains a photo or a graphic image.
