FORMAT OF THE TABLES FILE


The QUEST3D TABLES file is a simple sequential 8-byte character file which provides the minimum level interface to the CSD statistics package and can also be output by GSTAT.

It contains the names of parameters defined in a 3D test followed by the parameter values calculated for every database entry which passes that test.

The details of the file content can best be understood with respect to the example shown below.

Example 1.

Consider a single 3D test in which:

A sample TABLES file output from the search is shown below.

The entry ACOHKT contains two fragments which satisfy the test and entry BARTUS10 one fragment.

			#      1
			I NFRAG
			L REFCOD
			X ABSTAU
			D C=O
			! end
			#      1
			       1
			ACOHKT
			  75.168
			   1.219
			#      1
			       2
			ACOHKT
			  21.613
			   1.214
			#      1
			       3
			BARTUS10
			  10.475
			   1.197

Example 2.

In this example we will use the same search query as for Ex.1 but formulate the search question as two separate tests T1, T2 linked by the .AND. operator.

For test T1:

For test T2:

A sample TABLES file output from the search is shown below.

The entry ACOHKT contains two fragments which satisfy the test and entry BARTUS10 one fragment.

			#      1
			I NFRAG
			L REFCOD
			X ABSTAU
			#      2
			I NFRAG
			L REFCOD
			D C=O
			! end
			#      1
			       1
			ACOHKT
			  75.168
			#      1
			       2
			ACOHKT
			  21.613
			#      2
			       3
			ACOHKT
			   1.219
			#      2
			       4
			ACOHKT
			   1.214
			#      1
			       5
			BARTUS10
			  10.475
			#      2
			       6
			BARTUS10
			   1.197
