Concluding Record

The final record in an IDL save file is the END_MARKER record. It is empty, other than the record header that every record contains. I currently believe that any data following this record is ignored by IDL.

Format: END_MARKER (6)        (signals end of file)
Type Name Description
RHDR HDR Block header record

NOTES: Applications can use the presence of this record to terminate processing.
