Opening TPR files

Have a problem opening a .TPR file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what TPR files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .TPR file type?

Denoting the GROMACS Run Input File (.tpr) file type/format, the .trp filename extension primarily relates to GROMACS (Groningen Machine for Chemical Simulation), a free/open (GNU LGPL) molecular dynamics simulation software system. Generated by the GROMACS preprocessor (grompp) in a binary format, the .trp file stores all initialization data (molecular topology, initial structures, etc.) required for a GROMACS simulation to run. Run input files (.trp) can be viewed in a human-readable form using the gmxdump utility. The GROMACS engine and GROMACS input files (.tpr) are used in distributed computation network projects such as Folding@home from Stanford University.

Alternatively, the .tpr extension represents the TMPEGEnc Project (.tpr) file type. A commercial MPEG-1 encoder written by H.Hori (Pegasys Inc.) for Microsoft Windows, TMPEGEnc (Tsunami MPEG Encoder) uses project files to store various encoder settings that apply to a given video conversion job. Such .tpr files bear no actual multimedia data and cannot be played by multimedia players or 'converted' into other formats. They just store TMPEGEnc job settings, either in a text-based or a binary format, both under the same file type (.tpr). Instead of attempting to open the project file itself, one should look for its output file—an MPEG-1 video (.mpg, .mpeg) directly playable by all media players.

In the area of integrated circuits (IC) design, the .tpr extension represents the Tanner Place and Route (TPR) format of netlist files. A netlist is a complete list of interconnections that join the present electronic components into a meaningful circuit. The .tpr file is a text-only netlist in the TPR syntax. Generated in the schematic editor S-Edit (Tanner EDA), such netlists are used for automatic IC layout generation in Tanner's layout editor (L-Edit). TPR netlists can also be imported into other circuit design tools.
