How Metafiles Are Organized

Metafiles vary so widely in format that it is pointless to attempt to construct a hierarchical explanation of their general construction.

Some metafiles contain nothing but bitmap data, and still others contain no data at all, opting instead for cryptic drawing instructions, or numerical data similar to that found in vector files.
