.gld File Extension

Developer: Thermal Dynamics/Microchip Technology
File type: MPLAB C Compiler Linker Script File/Ground Loop De
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .gld. Files with the file extension .gld can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .gld files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .gld file?

The .gld file extension is used as a linker script file by the MPLAB C Compiler application. This compiler is used for the compilation of program logics for many microcontroller units such as Digital Signal Controllers. Instructions on how program codes can be merged in order to produce a file output are contained in these .gld files. These .gld files are also used so that the places that store microcontroller logic can be controlled, and this is done for quick and easy reference by developers who intend to track the different releases of code that has been written for certain hardware units. This code tracking feature is especially important in the further development of new firmware updates and releases for corresponding hardware units.

how to open a .gld file?

Launch a .gld file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .gld file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .gld files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .gld file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .gld file will open the correct application.

Microchip Technology MPLAB IDE

Microchip Technology MPLAB IDE

MPLAB IDE is a tool which was developed by Microchip Technology Inc. which aims to help its users in developing different types of applications which are embedded and which uses Microchip’s dsPIC as well as PIC microcontrollers. The tool works using Microsoft Windows 32-bit. MPLAB IDE has built-in text editors which can be customized that can be used for debugging menus using right mouse click functionalities which are specific for tracing, editing and breakpoints. The tool’s built-in text editor has MPLAB SIM which acts as a simulator that can be used for dsPIC as well as PIC devices. MPLAB IDE has the ability of comparing real time data that were collected to its comments as well as its primary source code using its correlation with trace to source. The tool also includes a built-in feature that can be used for framework colour highlighting.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .gld files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .gld. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
