What is a BHP file?

A BHP file is a wordlist used by BonhommePendu, a free, French version of Hangman. It contains a plain text list of words that can be loaded into the game. BonhommePendu includes three default BHP files, and players can download additional BHP files from the game's website.

Le bonhomme pendu is the French name for the classic word game Hangman. BonhommePendu is a free version of the game available for Windows and macOS. It is developed by Richard Berger and published on his website, Berric-á-brac.

BonhommePendu can load wordlists saved as BHP files, allowing players to customize the game. Each line of a BHP file contains a word, written in all-caps, a ; delimiter, and the word's category. If the words a BHP file contains are not associated with a category, BonhommePendu cannot load the file.

NOTE: In addition to downloading BHP files from BonhommePendu's website, players can create and import their own BHP files.
