The columns in ODB API files can currently be of following types:

  • REAL, single precision (32bits) floating point number,
  • STRING,for text columns. Currently limited to 8 characters.
  • INTEGER, 32 bits signed integer.
  • BITFIELD, for efficient encoding of flags.
  • DOUBLE, double precision (64 bits) floating point numbers.

The actual type of a column can be found using odb header tool.
