Resource group file
The resource group file contains all the resources that an AFP file references and that AFP Visual Environment found inline or in an AFP resource directory. AFP Visual Environment can create this file when it processes a production AFP file.
PurposeThe resource group file lets you print a file on a system that does not contain the AFP resources by concatenating the AFP file and its resource group file.
FormatThe format of this file is similar to the resource group file that the AFP Conversion and Indexing Facility (ACIF) program creates. However, the resource group file that AFP Visual Environment creates does not contain the name of the AFP file. The format is:
BRG BRS AFP resource ERS ERG
- Begin Resource Group (BRG) structured field
- Begin Resource (BRS) structured field
- AFP resource
- The AFP resource
- End Resource (ERS) structured field
- End Resource Group (ERG) structured field
