A Style Manual for Machine-Readable Data Files and Their Documentation.
Roistacher, Richard C.; And Others
This manual presents detailed descriptions and examples of standards and techniques for formatting and documenting machine-readable data files. The descriptions of syntax and stylistic elements are independent of whether documentation is produced manually or as a machine-readable text file. The manual also discusses rules of good practice for producing and documenting machine-readable data files. (Author/RAA)
