COD (Compiled Source Code)
The COD Developer file format
COD files are developer files that are associated with a number of different software developing programs. Most source code files contain scripts and code written in one or the other developing application. COD files can contain code written in dBASE, Fortran, J2ME (Java 2 Platform Micro Edition), or the Hava Development Environment for BlackBerry. Especially the latter is mostly used to create programs for BlackBerry phones using Java.
Technical details of COD files
The source code inside the COD files can consist of different programming languages, depending on the intended purpose and program it was compiled with. COD files created using BlackBerry JDE consists of compiled Java source code. By compiling and packaging the code in a COD file, it can easily be transferred to, for example, a BlackBerry phone to run it using the Java Virtual Machine. A COD file that’s the output of Microsoft C compiler, however, contains code written in C.
