Is eprof a special extension in a file `profile.eprof.ex`?

In the elixir source, there is a file called profile.eprof.ex and its module name is defined as Mix.Tasks.Profile.Eprof what does the eprof mean? Is it a special extension or a way to namespace a module?

Nothing. It is just name. Elixir (in contrast to Erlang) do not impose any file name conventions, it is just good practice to use similar name for file and content.
