>What type of file is a .bak?

A .bak file is a common way that Old School Coders (me included) create a back-up of a file in
case they cause irreparable harm to whatever file they're working on.  It's just a good "best
practices" thing.  To get the file to work again, just open it in your favorite text editor and
"SAVE AS" whatever the appropriate file type is.
