LEADTOOLS Vector Dump Format (VEC)

This is an internal vector format, used by the LEADTOOLS Vector Imaging Pro toolkit. The main advantage of using this format is the speed of writing and the capability of maintaining all the details of the vector data. It can be used to save the status of the vector toolkit, which can provide undo and redo capabilities.

Two versions of this format exist, version 12 and version 13. LEADTOOLS will maintain compatibility between different versions.

This format supports layers, grouping of objects and embedded raster objects.

The default extension used by this format is: VEC.

File constants associated with this file format are:
