1.3.1 RESQML Jargon

For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

The notion of "transfer" is referring to the exchange of data between any two RESQML-enabled software packages. Frequently we also refer to "exporting" or "writing" data to the RESQML format and "importing" or "reading" data.

In this context, the terms "software," "software package," "application" and others are used interchangeably—no special distinction is made between these terms. Software that writes or exports RESQML data is informally referred to as a "writer", and a package that is reading or importing RESQML data is referred to as the "reader."
