    Hey there-- I'm trying to produce a healpix images from data sent from a remote server... the guy's files are in .dat format, what program can i use to view/open/ use .dat files?

    Usually if files are .dat, all it means is they are binary, not ascii.

    Try this to see if it tells you what format it is
    $ file somefile.dat

  4. $spacer_open

    also, Gimp would not open the file.
