A.11 Portable File Data

The data record has tag code `F'. There is only one tag for all the data; thus, all the data must follow the dictionary. The data is terminated by the end-of-file marker `Z', which is not valid as the beginning of a data element.

Data elements are output in the same order as the variable records describing them. String variables are output as string fields, and numeric variables are output as floating-point fields.
