Thanks for following up Tom.

The guy who posted this question over on LQ seems to have left the
building so he either has a solution or he has given up.

Anyway, we will know for next time!

Hi :)
I did a google search about it and found a few proprietary tools that might work or might be dodgy.  I 
hate all that freeware/shareware or low cost dodgy looking proprietary looking stuff.  There is just no 
way of knowing what it's doing and there is a reputation that they do nasty stuff quite often.  If you 
are using the tools on Wine in Gnu&Linux then you are probably a lot safer than using the same 
tools in Windows ...

On the other hand some of the best-ever tools and games and things have been released that way so 
it's really difficult to tell if they are just falling foul of the same type of FUD that OpenSource 
gets tarred with.

I used to have an amazing Firewall that also acted as a package manager for updating drivers and 
everything in Windows Xp.  Their company got bought-out and then the product just vanished and i 
lost my installer.  Another was an awesome anti-spyware thing that was maintained by just 1 person 
but still managed to stay ahead of companies such as Norton/Symantec almost all the time.

There seems to be some confusion whether .ord are system config files or something like that or CAD 
files!  Quite a difference!  The proprietary tools seemed to deal with .ords that were system files.

I'm on a different machine today and haven't googled on here yet and prolly wont have time to sory.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] .ORD files
Hi, I am going to throw this in for comment. Not expecting much
response. I saw a mention on linuxquestions relating to reading a .ord file:

       ORD is a file format used by OMAX software to store routed tool path
       information. This is the information that the controller needs in
       order to machine a part.

The guy wants to know whether there is an application which can open
this type of file. I guess the question is, has anyone ever heard of
this file type before?
