Writing Housing Characteristics

This section provides a description of the standard format for the housing characteristics. In order to stop recommitting entire files and to keep differences easy to read during the review process, a standard format for writing housing characteristics has been created. All housing characteristics shall follow these format guidelines:


  1. All lines have the line ending characters ‘\r\n’ (i.e., “crlf” or “carriage return, line feed”).
  2. All non-dependency columns have format ‘%.6f’.
  3. Comment lines in the housing characteristics file, indicated by the “#” symbol, can be added.
