Headers in Striped Files (deprecated)

Note: Striping is deprecated, and provided for backward compatibility only. We recommend you use IDXFORMAT"8" instead.

In a striped file, the header of an individual stripe is 128 bytes long. The header contains an ASCII string of the form:

Stripe number nnn of file: filename

where nnn is a three-digit number containing the stripe number, and filename is the name of the associated file.

The string is padded with spaces up to the end of the 128 byte header.
