Plastic Warriors · Replica Format

[Replica icon]

Farallon Replica, or just Replica for short, was a file format used in the early '90s. Its purpose was to make sure a document would look the same on different computer systems, but it lost out to Adobe's PDF.

Opening Replica Documents

Farallon made a viewer for Windows, and possibly also for other operating systems. This is very difficult to find nowadays, but a copy can be found here on the Plastic Warriors web site.

No other viewers are known which will open Replica files correctly.

Printing Replica Documents

The Replica viewer referred to above will print out the files as well.
