What is a PLX file?

Plx file extension has 32-bit Linux IDA Plugin Module file type, developed by Hex-Rays, which is associated with the "plugin files" category.

Applied by IDA (The Interactive Disassembler), the file, which is written in C++, provides a plugin that adds extra features to the tool.

PLX files are quite similar to .DLL library files. All the plugins must be located within the plugins directory of the application.
