Jump to: navigation, search

The preferred Format for data tables is TAB-delimited TEXT-files (ASCII). Data are stored in a relational database (Sybase) in two tables: text and numeric. Single files are stored in a tape archive. File formats should follow ISO standards or at least de facto standards.
