ACATS 3.1 User's Guide
4.8 File Format
To conserve space and ease downloading, all files
in the delivered ACATS 3.1 (including test files, foundation files, and
support files) have been compressed. Except as noted below, decompressed
files (see Section 5.1.2
) use only ASCII characters.
A few tests use Unicode characters; these are indicated by an .au
extension. Some of the documentation files are provided in PDF and/or
HTML forms for greater readability. (The HTML documentation files include
GIF and PNG graphics files.) Other than the documentation files, no formatting
control characters, rulers or other information intended for editors
or display programs are included in the files.
Files with the .zip extension have been compressed
using a DOS zip utility; files with the .Z extension have been first
put in Unix tar format and then compressed with Unix compress.
