What is a PN file?

A PN file is a source code file written in the Pinecone programming language, which is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm language. It stores source code, which includes variables, functions, and user-defined structures, that can be compiled to the C++ programming language.

You will most likely only encounter a PN file if you are a program developer working with the Pinecone programming language, which is rather obscure. If you need to open a PN file to view or edit its contents, you can use a text editor since the language is stored as plain text.

The Pinecone programming language was developed in 2016 by William Wold. The programming language features a simple, consistent syntax and requires a C++11 compiler to be built.

Some other implemented features include:

  • Constants
  • Data structs
  • Flow control (if, if/else, while loop, for loop)
  • Functions
  • Int arrays
  • Interpreter
  • Operators, including +, *, %, :, =, >, <=, and &&.
  • Primitive data types Bool, Int, and Dub
  • Running system commands
  • Single and multi-line comments
  • Strings and various String operations
  • Transpiler to C++ for max performance
  • Tuples
  • User input

NOTE: Pinecone is no longer developed or maintained.

A PN file may also be a file that was created by Powernoodle, an online collaboration tool used to discuss business plans, ideas, and implementations. It stores content created through a Powernoodle session, such as diagrams, outlines, and debriefings, that is saved as a template for sharing with other users.

More Information

PN Powernoodle files are rare since Powernoodle no longer creates PN files to save templates. If you do encounter a PN file, it is most likely a Pinecone source code file or another type of PN file.

However, if the PN file was created by Powernoodle, you can open and view the contents of the file with a text editor, since the file is saved in a plain text format. The text in the file identifies the title, author, and date of the content as well as a key code that's used to uniquely identify and load the content in Powernoodle.

NOTE: Powernoodle cannot open PN files.
