These are csound files.  Csound recently added python as a scripting
language and is allowing also allowing csound calls from outside of
csound.  The nice thing about csound is that instead of worrying about
virus and large files it is an interpiter and all the files look
somewhat like html.  4,000 virus free instruments for $20 is available
at
http://www.csounds.com and the csound programming book is also
available.  The downside is that csound is can be realy ugly looking
(that is what I am trying to change) and it lets you write ugly looking
song code that is almost unreadable at times (would look nice in a
grid)
