ISO/IEC 14957, Information Technology Notation of Format for Data Elements

This International Standard specifies the notation to be used for stating the format, i.e. the character classes used in the representation of data elements and the length of these representations. It also specifies additional notations relative to the representation of numerical figures.

The scope of this International Standard is limited to graphic characters, such as digits, letters and special characters. It does not specify usage of control characters.

Edition 2 changes the notation used to be based on the "fscanf()" function in the C programming language (ISO/IEC 9899:1999).
