Question PDF files

What exactly is a PDF file? Why does it require the Adobe Reader and how is it different from other files? Just trying to understand.

Portable Document Format

Portable Document Format

Adobe Acrobat is used to create the file, Adobe reader is used to view the file. You have to buy Adobe Acrobat to create and edit the files, but you can distribute them to anyone to view. Its basically just another file format just like *.doc for a Word file or *.xls for an Excel file.
