Hello C., and all,

It is more a distinction of principle and usage, rather than a real difference:

  • `.puml` is generally use for plantuml source file;
  • rather `.iuml` is  is generally use for inclusion file with the preprocessing command `!include`.

See also doc here:

See also seacrh on `.iuml` here:

If that can help,
