Thanks for the quick response.

The first link contains the information I was interested in.  Your blurb
("The Allout file format is ...") is only useful if you know what a
"synoptic structure of a text file" is, especially in the context of
computers.  I tried googling for the term and some variations, and only
turned up religious sites.  I wasn't familiar with the format or the
terminology.  Looking up synoptic in the dictionary didn't shed much light
on the situation.  I just wanted to know what it did before I went through
the trouble of downloading it.

Thank You.

Sam Walters
