Artur made some suggestions for file extensions to be used / recommended for our formats / representations: (with comments by Jochen)

ASCII files

  • .ort Open Reflectometry Text
    (German: place)
  • .orp Open Reflectometry Pragmatic
    JS: pragmatic is associated with the content rather than with the representation.
  • .ord Open Reflectometry Data
    JS: binary file also contains data
  • .ora Open Reflectometry ASCII
    (Latin: pray, Italian: hour)

binary files

  • .orb Open Reflectometry Binary
    (sphere)
  • .ors Open Reflectometry Strict
    JS: strict is associated with the content rather than with the representation.
  • .orn Open Reflectometry NeXus
  • .orh Open Reflectometry HDF

model description

  • .orm Open Reflectometry Model
  • .orl Open Reflectometry Layers
    JS: model contains more than layers
  • .ors Open Reflectometry Structure
    see also binary files
  • .ord Open Reflectometry Description
    see also ASCII files

Attention: Several extensions are suggested in various categories!
