The data is record-oriented - one record per line, containing data on signal strength and spectral data about transmissions from polar weather satellites. The data files have sections of configurion, calibration, and data. The data is from five different transmit antennas, with two polarizations each. I have the parser throw call-back events like a SAX parser. It's been great because I can write new handlers as I need to do different kinds of analysis, without touching the parser. Nothing to do with XML but inspired by SAX. Cheers, Tom P
