Ascii (somewhat) bad
prev | up |
- Poor update-ability unless fixed length and not growing
- Room for error in parsing/unparsing. Use titles for tab-delimited.
- Tends to sloppy definitions (line ending issues; what to do with whitespace).
- Like many stream definitions needs boundary-stuffing (how to encode a tab in tab-delimited files).
- Bad if you must add many (possibly overlapping) attributes to text.
