Name
       DOTS - Data Object Transport Syntax (DOTS) files

Description
       Data  Object  Transport	Syntax	(DOTS)	is  DDIS/ASN.1 encoding for encapsulating the encoded interchange form of a number of related data
       objects.  Data objects must be related by having embedded references to other objects in the same  DOTS	encapsulation.	 Typically,  these
       embedded  references depend on the storage address (for example, filename) of the referenced object.  Therefore, when the referenced object
       is moved from one location to another, the storage address must be updated.

       The purpose of DOTS is to allow composite data objects to be moved from one location to another as a single object and to allow the  neces-
       sary storage reference to be updated as part of the process.

       The  primary  use for DOTS is moving multifile compound documents in which one DDIF or DTIF file may have reference data stored in a physi-
       cally separate file.  Mail is a major vehicle for moving DOTS objects.

       The commands and are used to pack and unpack DDIF and DTIF files.  The commands can also be used to copy a related  set	of  DDIF  or  DTIF
       files, or both, from one location to another.

Name
       DDIS - Digital Data Interchange Syntax / ISO ASN.1 (DDIS/ASN.1) files

Description
       DDIS/ASN.1 files conform to Digital's Digital Data Interchange Syntax.  DDIS conforms to syntaxes that can be defined within the specifica-
       tions of International Standards Organization Abstract Syntax Notation One (ISO ASN.1), but is not itself an  implementation  of  full  ISO
       ASN.1 syntax.

       DDIS/ASN.1 files conform to the DDIS/ASN.1 syntax.  The DDIS/ASN.1 syntax is itself used to define other syntaxes.  The following are among
       the syntaxes that are subsets of DDIS/ASN.1:

	      DDIF   Digital Document Interchange Format

	      DTIF   Digital Table Interchange Format

	      DOTS   Data Object Transport Syntax

       Files that conform to one of the DDIS/ASN.1 family of syntaxes are described as DDIS/ASN.1 files.  More specifically,  however,	the  files
       are typed according to a particular DDIS/ASN.1 syntax.  For example, a file that conforms to the DDIF syntax is a DDIF file, and is identi-
       fied by the command as a ddis/ddif file. The command includes the string ddis/ as a part of its output if a file belongs in the	DDIS  fam-
       ily.
