plist file description
File extension plist is associated mainly with Mac OS X (macOS) and iOS, but is also used in NeXTSTEP, and GNUstep programming frameworks.
A file with the plist file extension is a property file, a XML file using Apple’s plist DTD. Plist stands for Property List, and refers to the fact that plist files typically hold lists of properties.
The plist files are a standard part of OS X Core Foundation, so you’ll find them used by many OS X (macOS) native applications.
You can edit *.plist files using a text editor, or Apple’s PropertyListEditor, found on the Developer CD or on Apple’s web site.
Example of code in Apple's property list file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
