4.8 File Format

To conserve space and ease downloading, all files in the delivered ACATS 3.0 (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.
