Why this format ?

DBN is the sum of all my experience in decoding/understanding over a hundred differents formats, syntaxes and protocols. Some really primitive like INI,CSV, some very old : BMP, XMAP, PBM, some scientific : Grib, Netcdf, some proprietary : DXF,DWG, some military : IHO S-57, VPF, ... Old encodings, brain-fucking compressions, obsolete encryptions, half binary/half text. And so on...

All formats have unique caracteristics.

But among all those, very few are candidates to become corner stones. XML, JSON, PBF and theirs variants BXML, YAML, HJSON...

DBN is so far the most achieved binary dynamic format I could concived. It could store images, videos, bytecode, secret datas.
