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

Project description

Python module for reading and writing .ebf files
---------------------------------------------
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
