What is an .INC file?

.INC is Include File

Text file containing declarations, headers, functions, or other data referenced by a program's source code; can be used with C/C++, Pascal, Java, PHP (Web pages), and other languages.

INC files help make programming more efficient because one file can be referenced by many other files instead of having to rewrite the code multiple times.
