I'm searching the web for file extension .pst (post file from Virtual Gibbs) and it keeps telling me its an Outlook Express mail file. How do I open or read it?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
I tried opening it with notepad, wordpad, etc...Alot of binary comes up, but some text is evident further on...is it supposed to read that way?

File extensions are not unique and any vendor can call their files what they like. However looking at the Gibbs site their post process files would seem to have the extension .PP, so maybe this really is an Outlook file, in which case its mainly binary data with some text.. does any of the text make sense/give a clue as to its origin?
If you're in Europe why not come and visit the UK CNC Community at http://www.mycncuk.com
you can read and edit gibbs posts using "post haste"
GibbsCam post files use the .pst extension, and you need the Compost software (proprietary Gibbs) to edit them.
You cannot open Gibbs .pst files with Posthaste. Posthaste is a dll that runs as a plug-in in Gibbs and uses its own post templates & extensions:
.pm2 - .pm5
.pt2 - .pt4
.pu2 - .pu5
.pl2 - .pl5
my bad!! I meant compost
Correct, but you still need the associated .txt file.
