An Extractor script has the following general characteristics and limitations:
Case is ignored, except for text enclosed in double quotes.
Lines beginning with; !, / or ; are treated as comments and ignored.
Blank lines are ignored.
Instructions are delimited by new lines, that is, each instruction must be on a different line from the previous instruction.
The maximum length of a line is 255 characters.
The first two instructions in a script must be RECORD and FILETYPE, in that order.
Text enclosed in double quotes can contain the following backslash escape sequences:
\\ for a single backslash
\” for a double quote
\t for a TAB character.
This allows these otherwise special characters to be treated as literal in the string. For example:
DELIMITERS "\"" is syntactically valid to set the delimiter set to a double quote character.
DELIMITERS """ is syntactically invalid.
