RFM Driver Table
The RFM is controlled by a Driver Table, an ASCII file opened as
'rfm.drv' in the local directory,
which is intended to be created/modified with a text editor.
The driver table is divided into sections,
marked by records starting with *XXX, where XXX is one of
the predefined set of section labels, but
the last record should be *END
As the driver table is read, these section labels are written out in the
rfm.log file to help track progress.
Sections are divided into 3 classes:
The records within each section are mostly field-structured, ie contain
one or more fields in arbitrary order spread over as many records as required.
Some sections are record-structured, in which case the type and sequence of
fields within a record is fixed. See descriptions of individual sections
- The first six sections, in fixed order
- Sections which contain additional information depending which
Flags are enabled inthe
- Sections which modify output filenames or other default settings
Comments may appear at any point within the Driver File, indicated by an
exclamation mark '!'. Since any text on the record following an
exclamation mark is ignored, these can be used to comment out complete
records or ends of records.
Empty records are also permitted.
Case is only significant when defining filenames or directories
(internally, most information is converted to lower case).
