Q: What are file format APIs?
A: If programmers built cars, then APIs would be car parts. Here’s the more technical explanation, if you’re into that sort of thing (if not, then feel free to skip to the next question) … API is an acronym that stands for Application Programming Interface. APIs are pieces of software that are used by other software. If a programmer is creating a program, then they may call an API in their code to perform certain tasks. File format APIs allow programs to create, read, edit, and save popular file formats, like: Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PDF files, and many others.
