Hi I'm creating a program that writes programs and today I found out that what I thought was a plain text file format is really not. Does anyone have any techniques they'd like to share on figuring out the file format? Here is the text version of what is contained in the file.
/PROG ZERO
/ATTR
OWNER		= MNEDITOR;
COMMENT		= "";
PROG_SIZE	= 788;
CREATE		= DATE 00-11-29	TIME 18:10:12;
MODIFIED	= DATE 01-03-06	TIME 15:54:38;
FILE_NAME	= ;
VERSION		= 0;
LINE_COUNT	= 1;
MEMORY_SIZE	= 788;
PROTECT		= READ;
TCD:	STACK_SIZE	= 0;
	TASK_PRIORITY	= 50;
	TIME_SLICE	= 0;
	BUSY_LAMP_OFF	= 0;
	ABORT_REQUEST	= 0;
	PAUSE_REQUEST	= 0;
DEFAULT_GROUP	= 1,1,*,*,*;
/MN
1: J P[1] 25% FINE ;
/POS
P[1]{
   GP1:
      UF : 7,	UT : 1
      J1=     0.00 deg,	J2=     0.00 deg,	J3=     0.00 deg,
      J4=     0.00 deg,	J5=     0.00 deg,	J6=     0.00 deg,
   GP2:
      UF : 0,	UT : 1
      J1=     0.00 deg,
};
/END


Here is the actual file in notepad.
þï     ÿ   ZEROþæ÷ÿÿ HMN?EDITORÜÿìòÿ©)}‘F*f~ÝÓéö ù3 2zçöüó 
þ4 ÷ ýò (  	1qÎêó	
:ÿðÿÿ

Any help would be apreciated thanks. I've already requested this information from the company who owns the format and they did not seem to excited to give me the information and said that I should await their call.
