The Print Shop
The Print Shop is a desktop publishing application from Brøderbund.
Early versions of it stored clip art libraries in a pair of files whose names begin with "GR", and which apparently use extensions ".NAM" and ".DAT". The .NAM file contains names, and the .DAT file contains graphics.
A version of it named The New Print Shop used a variant format with filename extensions ".PNM" and ".POG".
There are many other file extensions, for different graphics formats, format versions, border graphics, fonts, etc. These include .PNG, .CNG, .PBG, .PBD, .POB, .PFN, .PNF, and probably many others. More research is needed here.
A DAT file consists of a 572-byte raw bitmap segment for each (bi-level, 88×52) image. It is usually a multiple of 572 bytes in size.
POG files are apparently the same as DAT files, except that they begin with a 10-byte header.
