5.1.1. XYZ file formatΒΆ

GIFtools assumes all XYZ files are in a specific format. The file should have an uncommented header line and be white-spaced delimited (tabs/space mixture is ok). Comments are given throughout the file by: / , ! , or %. There are seven specific keywords that should not be in the header:

  • Line

  • Test

  • Trend

  • Tie

  • Base

  • Special

  • Random

Below is a sample XYZ file with the header [X Y Z Total_Field]:
