Define all internal structural components and all layer-dependent
features of a Somusar/Software Entity[tm].
Entity files are text files with a name ending in ".ef".
An <entity-reference> is defined as the base name of an entity file,
without any leading file path specifier and without the trailing
suffix ".ef". User-defined Sisendel types are by
An entity file consists of a sequence of <logical-line>
blocks, called <section>'s, structured as follows:
A <logical-line> consists of one or more physical lines of text; a
backslash \ as the last character of a physical line indicates
that the logical line continues on the next physical line.
Four types of <logical-line> are defined:
Blank lines are lines containing only white spaces (blank, tab).
- Empty lines;
- Blank lines;
- Comment lines;
- Content lines.
Comment lines are defined in the next chapter.
Content lines are lines structured according to the Sisendel
syntax definitions described by this guide.
Empty lines, blank lines, and comment lines can be freely
intermixed with content lines.
As described later in the guide, an <entity-reference>
can be used as a new Sisendel user type within other entity files.
