Mineset Files
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

Mineset is a data visualization package from Silicon Graphics, Inc.  The published and portable data format is tab-delimited ASCII, stored in a file with a .data extension and described by a dictionary in a file with a .schema extension.


Standard extensions:  schema, data

Reading Mineset files

When using Mineset data as input for a transfer, give the file with the .schema extension (the dictionary file) as the input file.  Stat/Transfer will then look in the same directory for a file of the same name, but with the .data extension and will read the input data from this file.


Some of the more exotic features of Mineset files such as arrays and enumerations are not supported.


Writing Mineset files.

In the Output File Specification of the Transfer dialog box, specify a name for the .schema file.  The data file will then be written to the same directory with a .data extension


Missing Values

Mineset uses '?' for missing numeric values.  Stat/Transfer recognizes this on input of Mineset files and writes it on output to Mineset files.
