Tab delimited fields useful for OpenOffice, Ploticus etc. (openoffice)

This format can...

  • read and write waypoints

This format is derived from the xcsv format, so it has all of the same options as that format.

Tab separated export-all (except geocaching data) file format. Intended to serve as source for number-processing applications like OpenOffice, Ploticus and others. Tab was chosen as delimiter because it is a) supported by both OpenOffice and Ploticus and b) is not ',', so you can use sed -i "s/./,/g" <x>.csv' to adapt it to locales where ',' is used as decimal seperator.
