ddif, DDIF - Digital Document Interchange Format files  


DDIF(TM) is the CDA(TM) interchange, storage, and application file format for revisable compound documents containing multiple data types including text, graphics, images, and audio. DDIF compound documents can dynamically link to DTIF(TM) (Digital Table Interchange Format) files for automatic update via ACA(TM) LiveLinks(TM).

DDIF compound documents can be displayed and printed on a variety of devices, including text-only terminals or PCs (character-cell) and imaging and WYSIWYG terminals (windows workstations and PCs).

DOTS (Data Object Transport Syntax) and network services such as DECwindows Motif mail, DECnet(TM), the File Transfer Protocol, DEC MAILworks(TM), PATHWORKS(TM), and ACA LiveLinks support transfer of DDIF compound documents among key NAS(TM) platforms: VMS(TM) and ULTRIX(TM) DECwindows(TM) Motif(R), X windows on Sun(TM) SPARCstations(TM), DEC(TM) OSF/1(R), MS-DOS(R) Microsoft(R) Windows(TM), and OS/2(TM). For more information, refer to manpages for DOTS and the dtoc and ctod commands.

DEC CDA Run-Time Services provides the facilities for CDA applications to create, store, interchange, and display CDA-supported compound document and tabular file formats. For more information on CDA enabling technologies and the DEC CDA Run-Time Services, refer to the CDA manpage.
