Question: Is there any command on OS/2 through which I can get to know an association between the file type and application with which the file would be opened. Just like what we have in windows whereby with the use of "assoc" and "ftype" we can find out the application needed to launch a particular file type.
Answer: OS/2 is a lot more flexible than windows as it does associations at the file level instead of at the file type level. You can have sxeveral files in OS/2 all with the same file type and each associated with a different program. Associations can be referenced and set via the Association tab of the properties notebook.
