SECS.TXT

This map format was requested by a customer as an output -- however we have no information as to what software system or equipment reads and writes it. Since many of the parameters seem similar to what we might find in a SECS Binary file we are calling it SECS.TXT.

If you recognize this format and know what machine it is associated with please contact me by email.
