File extension .IML
|ACT! Internet Mail Message Format||JetBrains||Developer Files|
The IML file format is a plain text module definition file used by the integrated development environment (IDE) IntelliJ IDEA. It stores specific project settings and module information, such as classpaths, SDKs (Software Development Kits), libraries, document hierarchies, lookup configuration generally used by developers. An IML file can be likened to a.project file in Eclipse IDE, as both contain specific project settings.
Structure of an IML File
The IML file contains two sections, version and component. The version line includes the IntelliJ IDEA version and the component section provides the module name, order entries, and libraries within the project. Other data within the file includes content root entries and external build configuration file paths. Entries like compiler instructions or references to external annotations are written into this file. The top-level configuration of each module is stored within an .iml file; and when a project is opened in IntelliJ IDEA, the program generates one .iml file in a directory for each module.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .IML) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .IML extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .IML file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .IML extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .IML extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .IML file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .IML file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .IML file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .IML file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .IML file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
