What is TEC file?

TEC file format is used by TECkit software, a program used for converting text from one format into another. This file format contains compiled version of MAP file also created with TECkit program. TECkit original purpose was conducting conversion of 8-bit encoded files into Unicode format, however, later the software evolved into more sophisticated utility.

Text conversion process

Proper text conversion into TEC file requires presence of MAP file. Before the final conversion process into TEC file the text is stored in MAP file in plain text format.

Using TEC files for other conversion purposes

TEC files are sometimes used by LaTeX utility for ‘on the fly’ text conversion processes, usually when generating LaTeX files from previously created files in different languages.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the TEC file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the TEC file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the TEC file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the TEC file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the TEC file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the TEC file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
