       CDA - Compound Document Architecture

       Digital's CDA architecture for compound documents is an open architecture that establishes a framework for the interchange of many types of
       data in a multivendor environment.  Utilizing CDA converters, compound revisable format data can be handled much the same  as  ASCII  text.
       With  CDA  converters, you can write applications that handle compound documents, regardless of the environment in which you or application
       users are working.

       CDA includes the Digital Document Interchange Format (DDIF), the Data Object Transport Syntax (DOTS), and  the  Digital	Table  Interchange
       Format  (DTIF).	 Each of these formats is encoded using the Digital Data Interchange Syntax (DDIS).  Using these representations, CDA pro-
       vides a method for manipulating files that contain a number of integrated components.

       The tools associated with CDA include the CDA Toolkit (libddif.a), the CDA Converter (the main converter is and the CDA Viewers.   The  CDA
       Toolkit	is  a collection of routines that support the creation of CDA applications.  The CDA Converter converts files of a specified input
       format to a specified output format.  The CDA Viewers are used to display CDA-encoded files on a workstation display or character cell ter-

       All  of	the  following products support CDA-encoded files.  If you only intend to manipulate CDA files, and do not have an interest in the
       particulars of the file format,	you can use any one of these products to manipulate a CDA-encoded file:

       CDA Converters
       CDA Viewers (dxvdoc, vdoc)

       DOTS - Data Object Transport Syntax (DOTS) files

       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.
