RIP script file.

RIP stands for "Remote Imaging Protocol (script)". A .rip file is a script written in the RIP script, which was known as "RIPscrip"

RIP was developed in 1993 by Telgrafix Communications Inc, which subsequently closed in 2000. A .rip script describes a vector graphics image, suitable for EGA video (which is 640x350 pixels with 16 colours). This was developed in the time with 2400 baud modems were prevalent, so the emphasis was on keeping file sizes small. A .rip file therefore provided a convenient format for a low resolution vector graphic image.
