What is a CRASHED file?

A CRASHED file is an auto-saved document created by the Mac version of AbiSource AbiWord, a free, open-source word processor. It saves a copy of the opened document (e.g., .AWB, .AWT, etc.) before the program crashed. AbiWord creates the file to rescue unsaved document edits that would otherwise have been lost to an unexpected crash.
