Document format rules

Document Delivery Rule



Unique Output Document Name

Each output document must have a unique name in the directory in which it is created.

Each output document is created in a specific directory. As a result, there will be instances where another file already exists in the directory. Giving each output document a unique name will prevent the overwriting of output documents.


Version Number (in header)

The first characters in the output document must be an ASCII representation of the version number.

The version number is currently 101.

Note: If a change is made the version number will be incremented.

The version number will be followed by a NULL character.



The header:

Must immediately follow the version number and NULL character.

Will be an XML data structure that contains the destination filename and extra commands that may be required for:



HTTP or network delivery.



FTP delivery.



The destination will be NULL terminated, followed by a carriage return and line feed.



All content to deliver to the remote is located after the:

Version number,

Destination file name (included in header)

Separating carriage return and

Line feed.

Note: The version number and destination filename will be removed from the document before it is sent to the remote location.
