Mixed data set

The ability of saving data of different types into one data set may be important if some c-type structures are to be mapped into the DSPACK objects. Mixed data sets may contain any number of items of different types - the types 1 to 6 above are allowed. When defining a mixed data set the programmer specifies the content in a way very similar to that used by ZEBRA - with following differences:

Mixed data sets are intended for short, simple definitions. For larger objects a much more efficient method is to use Structure type.
