This part of ISO/IEC 8632 specifies a binary encoding of the Computer Graphics Metafile. For each of the
elements specified in ISO/IEC 8632-1, this part specifies an encoding in terms of data types.
For each of these data types, an explicit representation in terms of bits, octets and words is specified. For some
data types, the exact representation is a function of the precisions being used in the metafile, as recorded in the
This encoding of the Computer Graphics Metafile will, in many circumstances, minimize the effort required to
generate and interpret the metafile.
