    A quick Google found http://filext.com/detaillist.php?extdetail=CFF but it's probably no use whatsoever since it will be some ropey proprietry 'educational' software.

    Re: Hottest day of the year so I cannot think

    Context is also great help in these situations.
    Do you know what type of information is being sent?
    Is it a graphic file? Is it font? What subject is the teacher involved in?

    Sent to school no name on envelope, got the impression it is somehow connected with a cctv tape

    Re: Hottest day of the year so I cannot think

    Open it in a text editor (unless it's massive - not a dump of video files?) and see if there are any clues.

    if you have access to a linux box... run strings and file
    Code:
     you@linuxbox: strings /path/to/unidentified/file
    which will dump text strings to the console.
    Code:
    you@linuxbox: file /path/to/unidentified/file
    which will have a stab at identifying the file.

    Google suggests it's a font, though cctv recorder vendors have funny ideas about "unused" file extensions when writing apps.

    Make sure you run a virus scan on it first?.......

    Un-labelled envelopes are much like un-subject-ed and un-sender-ed emails........

    Either that or I'm just pedantic.
