The RAP file is the main file type associated with Raptor. It is created in order to store a flowchart, which is used for designing a Raptor program. When you initially create a flowchart it only contains "Start" and "End" symbols. You can add symbols in between those symbols, such as "Assignment", "Call", "Input", "Output", "Selection", and "Loops".

You can create a RAP file by selecting File → New and save it by selecting File → Save or Save As.

You can open a RAP file by selecting File → Open.
