What is a REDS file?

A REDS file is a source code file written in the Red/System programming language, which is a low-level dialect of the Red programming language. It stores code in the Red/System syntax, which is similar to the Rebol programming language and human-readable.

Nenad Rakočević developed the Red programming language to improve upon the Rebol programming language. The language was introduced in 2011 and with the intention of it being a full-stack language where a developer could create the front-end and back-end of software.

NOTE: REDS files store the Red/System language, whereas .RED files contain source code in the Red syntax, which is a high-level programming language
