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:
- Data structs
- Flow control (if, if/else, while loop, for loop)
- Int arrays
- 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
- User input
NOTE: Pinecone is no longer developed or maintained.
Programs that open PN files
Powernoodle File (Discontinued)

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.
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.
