a module to read and write .ebf files (efficient and easy to use binary format) for python 2 and 3

Project description

EBF is a binary format for storing data. It is designed to read and write data, easily and efficiently.

  • Store multiple data items in one file, each having a unique tag name + tagnames follow the convention of unix style pathname e.g. /x or /mydata/x
  • Automatic type and endian conversion
  • Support for multiple programming languages + data can easily read in C, C++, Fortran, Java, IDL and Matlab + facilitates easy distribution of data
  • Comprehensive numpy support + data is read back as numpy arrays + almost any numpy array can be written + Nested numpy structures are also supported
  • Read and write directly a recursive dictionary of numpy arrays
  • Internally uses hashtable for fast retireival of data items. + also allows for overwrite prevention
