Hi All, This is my first post so please be gentle. I have searched low and high and cant find anything so here goes. Does anyone know good places to find information on file formats? specifically, how to make/open custom formats... the few articles i have found tend to be a little abstract and not too helpful.

wotsit.org. How good a fileformat is depends on for what you need it.

Example factors:
* long term space efficient storage
* temporary files needed for lighting fast swapping
* temporary files needed for non critically fast swapping
* temporary files to be send over the internet
* large files
* small files

et cetera.

Did you know you can type questions into Google?

(Also, the topic line of a post is not supposed to be used for building suspense; it is supposed to be used for summarizing your question/problem. If your question can be asked in one sentence, put it in the topic, and use the post to provide context.)
