Yes, the data is binary, lots of Fortran INTEGER*4 and REAL*8.
At least in some cases, data could be split for putting it into some 
database. But that would require very many changes in all aspects of our 
work as not only the producer has to be made SQL-aware, but also all 
consumers of this data. Another aspect is that data is usually consumed in 
the same sequence that it was produced, so none of the fancy sorting could 
be involved.
