TPT binary mode export

I tried exporting the data using TPT in binary mode and it worked. File has been created.

When I tried to understand the exported data file, I am not able to understand it.

Is that will be the LPF(Length Prefixed File) ? 

How to interpret the data meaning what is the starting point and End point of record.

what is the record terminator if we export data in binary mode.

Re: TPT binary mode export

The different record formats are documented in the TPT Reference Manual.

I guess my first question is, why did you choose "binary" if you were unaware of the record format?

I would think you would want to choose a format with which you are familiar?

The definition of the "binary" format is:

2-byte record length, 'n', followed by 'n' bytes of data.

There is no end-of-record marker for this format.
