File Naming Convention

The constituents of the current calibration file are named as follows:

scope_calname_issue.ccf

where:

scope indicates the scope of the calibration file (at most 5 characters long). The list of scope identifiers is given in table 1.

calname is the calibration data type identifier (at most 17 characters long).

issue is the file issue number (integer $\ge 0$ and $\le 9999$, zero padded).

File names are not case sensitive. In this document they are type set with uppper and lower case letters for readability.
