Introduction[edit]

Datatypes have largely replaced the EA / Commodore era inspired IFF file formats.


IBM has an entry about IFF file format.


only some few times its called blocklen 128 bytes 1.

Something FRead-ing pointers/IFF-offsets one at a time, then FRead-ing the following block of data? (Disk blocks numbers and file entries?)

Especially IFF:

  • Read FORM (LONG)
  • Read length (LONG)
  • Read type (LONG)
  • Read block-length (LONG)
  • Read block content (an even number of bytes)
