What is an .MOD file?

.MOD is Amiga Music Module File

Standard music module format recognized by most audio tracking programs; may be created by FastTracker, StarTrekker, Noise Tracker, or another MOD creation program.

MOD files contain note patterns (much like a MIDI file) as well as sound samples used for different instruments. The sound samples are assigned to different tracks within the module and are played back according to the notes in the score.

File Type 3 GRUB Module
Developer by: The GNU Project Category: System Files

Software module used by GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader), a boot loader used for loading multiple operating systems; stores a GRUB module and is loaded by GRUB 2 dynamically only if needed for the particular boot process.

GRUB 2 was slightly redesigned to be modular. This design allows a smaller footprint for the boot loader since only required modules are loaded.

GRUB MOD files are located in the /boot/grub/ or /boot/grub2/ directories.

File Type 4 Fortran Module File
Category: Developer Files

Compiled program file written in the Fortran programming language; created for each module declaration within the Fortran source code; groups related procedures and data together in a single file, which can be referenced other program units.

Fortran MOD files are "intermediate" files and are not meant to be opened manually. However, they may be referenced by Fortran compilers, such as those listed below.

File Type 5 AMPL Model File
Developer by: Bell Laboratories Category: Data Files Format: Text

Model file used to compute complex, large-scale mathematical problems; contains variables (parameters, and sets), a function, and constraints written in AMPL (A Mathematical Programming Language) code; appears as linear, nonlinear, quadratic, mixed-integer, and other problem types; includes comments, which must be prefaced with a "#."

To load your MOD file, e.g., example.mod, type model example.mod; if it's located in your "amplcml" folder with your sw.exe file. If your example.mod file is located in a different location you'll need to include the path. Type something like this (if using Windows):model C:Usersexample.mod;. After successfully loading your MOD file, type solve; to solve the problem. Then if you want to display any of your results, type display and whatever results you want displayed. Remember to always end your line with a ;.

An example of a MOD file:

var XB;
var XC;
maximize Profit: 25 * XB + 30 * XC;
subject to Time: (1/200) * XB + (1/140) * XC
