3.6.7 CDF

NASA's Common Data Format, described at http://cdf.gsfc.nasa.gov/, is a binary format for storing self-described data. It is typically used to store tabular data for subject areas like space and solar physics.

This format can be automatically identified by its content so you do not need to specify the format explicitly when reading CDF tables, regardless of the filename.

The handler class for files of this format is CdfTableBuilder.
