Turn on the rewrite engine
    RewriteEngine on

If the file requested is NOT a regular file...
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f

... then rewrite the URI (part relative to directory where the .htaccess is located or specified in last RewriteBase command) with main.php. QSA keeps any query string part and appends new ones and L specifies this is the last rewrite rule. For example http://host/current/dir/subdir/notafile?lang=en -> http://host/current/dir/main.php?lang=en.
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ main.php [QSA,L]
