Example

59

Comment: All the following header lines contain information for classifying the dataset in the database. With respect to the original NASA-Ames specification, these are "normal comment lines", or auxiliary comment lines. Header line 102 gives the total number of these lines. Since some of these "EBAS" lines are optional, this number (and also the total number of header lines in header line 1) needs to be adapted if lines are left out (or added, e.g. address lines).
