The Binary Application Record Encoding (BARE) is a data format used to represent application records for storage or transmission between programs. BARE messages are concise and have a well-defined schema, and implementations may be simple and broadly compatible. A schema language is also provided to express message schemas out-of-band. Comments Comments are solicited and should be addressed to the mailing list at ~sircmpwn/ and/or the author(s).
