What for are the WDL, WDR, WDD, WDW files in AutoCAD?

A - answer Files with extensions .wdt, .wdl, .wdd, .wdr, .wdx, .wdi, .wdf, .wdw, .wdn, .wda, .wdp are "wire description" files used in the AutoCAD Electrical projects. The ACAD Electrical projects also use .loc and .inst files. All such files are dependent external references of the project DWG file.
