I think it would be best to save the voltage values
in a machine-independent format. This requires less
code and therefore fewer opportunities for bugs. It also
makes it easy to guarantee that all future versions of the program
can read all data files made by earlier versions.
Since we can't be sure how many digits will be required
to express the precision of future machines, the header
will probably need a field describing the format of
I could, I suppose, bit-pack the voltages -- in other words,
if there are only 1024 possible voltages, each number would
occupy 10 bits in the file instead of 16. However, the file
would still benefit from zipping (because its length could be
reduced further by run-length encoding) so maybe it's not
worth the trouble.
