During the next weeks I will have to do cope with BIG column binary
formatted (CBF) data sets. As I understand the scheme, CBF saves disk space
so much that there
can't be explicit var names or labels expected. They do have to get added
later, I guess?! I would like to know how that kind of stuff does LOOK like.
Viewed from an other perspective: These data are said to be in SPSS data
are they still in CBF, or already transformed into SPSS?
Just let me know.
