How to view a .fam file

Postby guoluo » Wed Aug 29, 2012 3:29 pm

Hi everyone!

I have a .fam file generated by Cyrillic, but I don't have Cyrillic. Is there any free software that can view this kind of file?

I opened the .fam with text editor, the first few characters are "Pedigree Editor V6.5 .FAM". The rest of the file is messy codes.

Thanks!

If text editor cannot read it, then it's not text probably, which would be in agreemetn with Pedigree editor.

what program did you get it with?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

Thank you JackBean.

The .fam file was generated by Cyrillic (a pedigree drawing software).

Then my best guess would be to open it in Cyrillic.It's probably not text file if the text editor cannot read it.
