D.3.1 Metadata

Metadata ⇒
    int[per-series] int[n-series] int[offset]
    vB0(byte*64[source-name] int[x])

A data source consists of n-series series of data, with per-series data values per series.

source-name is a 32- or 64-byte string padded on the right with zero bytes. The names that appear in the corpus are very generic, usually tableData or source0.

A given Metadata’s offset is the offset, in bytes, from the beginning of the member to the start of the corresponding Data. This allows programs to skip to the beginning of the data for a particular source; it is also important to determine whether a source includes any string data (see SPV Legacy Member Data).

The meaning of x in version 0xb0 is unknown.
