EXP+ format

Threaded View
I would like to write a digitizing program for a class project.  I need to
be able to save files in EXP + format.
Does anyone know where I can find the specifications of the format.
I'm looking for information of how the file saves the (x,y) coordinates of
each stitch, and the command to stop for a color change.  I know the color
information is saved in the .INF file that together with the .EXP file
make up the EXP+ format, so information on the specification of the INF
format will help tremendously.

Thanks in advance

BTDT. I can't tell you anything about the INF part, but the structure of
EXP is quite straight forward. It's more or less 2 (signed) bytes for
normal stitches and 4 for jumps / color changes with are indicated by
0x80 as the first byte. Here's a web site with some explanations:
