Next: Green Bank Convention Up: Multidimensional Arrays in Binary Previous: Multidimensional Arrays in Binary TDIMn Keyword

CTP propose one convention, using the TDIMn keyword, which has been reserved for multidimensional array description. The value of the TDIMn keyword, '(i,j,k,...)', describes the dimensions of the array, $i \times j \times k \times \ldots$, stored such that the index along the first dimension (i) varies most rapidly, the same convention used for the primary data array. The product of the dimensions must be equal to the repeat count specified in the value of the TFORMn keyword. This convention is not a formal part of the proposed binary table definition. Other conventions are possible and may be used.
