Perhaps open it in a text editor and look for any strings which give
clues as to what it is?

On *nix systems, I would just use the 'file' command, which is rather
good at determining what a file is (file extensions mean very little to
proper systems ;) )

If you want me to tell you what the 'file' command has to say about it,
feel free to send me a copy off-list.
