       DOTS - Data Object Transport Syntax (DOTS) files

       DOTS (Data Object Transport Syntax) is a DDIS/ASN.1 syntax for encapsu‐
       lating and transferring revisable  DDIF	compound  documents  and  DTIF
       files  having  external	links to multiple subfiles or data objects via
       mail systems.  When the referenced subfiles or objects are  moved  from
       one  location  to another, the storage address (for example, file name)
       must be updated within the base document.

       DOTS allows composite data objects, such	 as  compound  documents  with
       linked subfiles, to be moved (mailed) from one location to another as a
       single object and allows the necessary storage reference to be  updated
       as part of the process.

       For more information, refer to manpages for the ctod and dtoc commands,
       which are used to pack and unpack DDIF and DTIF files and their	exter‐
       nally linked subfiles.  The commands can also be used to copy a related
       set of DDIF or DTIF files, or both, from one location to another.
