I believe they are orthogonal to my module.
Besides which I would not encourage the proliferation of
file formats which are by design not extensible or
self-documenting. See the note in the documentation
that I provided about exactly that. Fixed width file
formats are not exactly on my hit parade of great ideas
An incidental question. Even if I did want to use fixed
width file formats, what is your value add over the
better-known pack and unpack plus Perl's native
support for formats? Perl started life dealing with lots
of ASCII reports and has quite a few now little-used
facilities for doing just that.
