Janome Embroidery Format JEF

The JEF and JEF+ files consists of a number of sections. Multi-byte numbers appear to be stored little endian. For the JEF (and not JEF+ ) files, there is no simple signature, except to see if the Stitch-offset is after the Thread-type-list.

File =

 File-header
 Thread-colour-list
 Thread-type-list
 [Plus-header]

Thread-colour-list = {Thread-colour}

Thread-type-list = {Thread-type}

Stitch-list = {Stitch}

Stitch = Escaped-command | Displacement
