Formats Overview

Formats Overview

The
format
property of a Parser defines the format of the documents for the transformation to process. The value of the property is one of the following format components:
BinaryFormat CustomFormat HtmlFormat RtfFormat TextFormat XmlFormat
The format has properties of its own, which further define how the Parser interprets and processes the input.
The following table describes the sub-components that you can nest in a format:
Subcomponent
Description
Delimiter
Defines a hierarchy of characters or strings that organize the information in the document, such as newlines and tabs.
Format preprocessor
Cleans up the source before the Parser starts searching for anchors.
Default transformer
Performs predefined operations on the output of each anchor.
