The following is an alphabetical list of registered FORMs, generic chunks
(shown as (any).chunkname), and registered new chunks for existing FORMs
(shown as formname.chunkname).  The center column describes where
additional information on the FORM or chunk may be found.  Items marked
"EA_IFF" are described in the main chapters of the EA IFF specs.  Those
marked "IFF_TP" are described in the third-party specications section.
Items marked "propos" are proposals which have been submitted to CATS,
some of which are private.  And items marked with "----" are private or
yet unreleased specifications.  New chunks and FORMS should be registered
with CATS US, IFF Registry, 1200 Wilson Drive, West Chester, PA. 19380.
Please make all submissions on Amiga diskette and include your address,
phone, fax.
