Here is our offering: Electronic Arts' IFF standard for Interchange File
Format.  The full name is "EA IFF 1985".  Alternatives and justifications
are included for certain choices.  Public domain subroutine packages and
utility programs are available to make it easy to write and use
IFF-compatible programs.

Part 1 introduces the standard.  Part 2 presents its requirements and
background.  Parts 3, 4, and 5 define the primitive data types, FORMs, and
LISTs, respectively, and how to define new high level types.  Part 6
specifies the top level file structure.  Section 7 lists names of the
group responsible for this standard.  Appendix A is included for quick
reference and Appendix B.
