ffe is a flat file extractor. It can be used for reading different flat file structures and displaying them in different formats. ffe can read fixed length and separated text files and fixed length binary files. It is a command line tool developed under GNU/Linux. The main areas of use are extracting particular fields or records from a flat file, converting data from one format to an other, e.g. from CSV to fixed length, verifying a flat file structure, as a testing tool for flat file development, and displaying flat file content in human readable form.

The record keyword "level" and the printing keywords "group-header", "group-trailer", "element-header", and "element-trailer have been implemented. These can be used to print flat file contents in a structured format (e.g. multilevel XML). The record keyword "record-length" has been implemented. This can be used to ignore extra fields that are not defined for a record.

Records can now be identified using regular
expressions using the new keyword "rid". The

abort when an invalid block is found from binary
input. Instead of aborting, the next valid block
is searched from the input stream.
