What is a Fielded Text file?

A fielded text file is a file that contains a tables of values. Think CSV file. However it can also be a file that has information in Fixed Width fields.

The structure of the data in the file is specified by a Meta file. This is a small XML file which holds all the layout, structure and format of the data within the file. With this file, a FieldedText reader can read the table(s) of values within a file without having to take into account how these values are stored in the file. Likewise for writing tables of values.
