    hey guys

    i've had this weird file called package.lst sitting in my home directory since april, and i've always wondered what it was but never asked anyone about it. i googled it and came up with nothing... any ideas? my comp can't find a program to open the file extension .lst, so i'm wondering what it is.

    Never heard of it...

    .lst... maybe some form of list?

    Any way to see what's inside? Can you CTRL-click on it and "Show Package Contents"?
    Can you open it with TextEdit?

    There is a Scrabble program called WordBiz that creates a file by that name. A real pain since it does it in the System directory on Windows (c:\windows\system32) and prevents any user without right permissions to the system32 directory from launching it.

    On Windows the package.lst contains some kind of plain text hash on two lines and a blank line below them.

    EDIT: The Wordbiz program is distributed through That page may have more info about the file.
