Compact NFO Viewer

Welcome to underworld


Short description

Compact NFO Viewer - popular viewer for text files containing ASCII Art and description files (NFO/DIZ/TXT).



Compact NFO Viewer is the most popular utility designed for viewing text files containing ASCII Art (e.g. nfo files), and it proved itself to be handy.
So, if you're fed up with starting some DOS-like file manager each time you need to view nfo file, or ain't too happy with the viewer you use, or (worst case) use Notepad - give this little tool a try.



About NFO files

Are used to store ASCII art. Are used especially by undergorund artists, hackers and other Interet 'ghosts' but the NFO files are also used by regular companies to distribue a description together with an application. Recently Microsoft also uses this format to store system specific information. This is a totally different format and you need a special viewer.
