.PSV File Extension
File Type 1Pipe System Viewer File
File format categories include Binary, Text, XML, and Zip. The format of this file type has not been determined.
CAD file created by PIPE-FLO, an application used for designing liquid and gas piping systems; contains a working model of a piping system that can be viewed with the free PIPE-FLO Viewer program; uses a read-only format that cannot be edited with any PIPE-FLO software.
PSV files can be used for sending design drafts between team members as well as to clients for review. The design itself includes equipment, pipelines, and notes and can be simulated under different sets of conditions to examine the performance of the piping system.
NOTE: PSV files can only be created with the Professional version of PIPE-FLO.
File Type 2PlayStation 2 Save File
This file is saved in a binary format, which requires a specific program to read its contents.
PlayStation 2 (PS2) game file created using a PlayStation 3 (PS3); saved when a PS2 game is played on a PS3 system; can be transferred from the PS3's hard drive to a memory card, which can be used to copy the PSV file to a computer's hard drive.
You can manipulate PSV files using PSV Exporter and PS2 Save Builder. First, you can extract files from a PSV file using PSV Exporter. Then, you can import the extracted files into PS2 Save Builder for conversion into another format, such as the Code Breaker .CBS format.
File Type 3Pipe Separated Values File
File used by various applications for data storage and transfer; separates data fields by the pipe "|" character similarly to how .CSV files use the comma "," character; useful when data fields contain embedded commas or tabs, such as with a text description field.
PSV files can be imported into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet if you define the data delimiter as the pipe character. Microsoft Access can also import PSV files into data tables. Additionally, programmers sometimes use the sed Unix command line utility to parse PSV files for input data or for scripted data exchange applications.
