I would be interested to know exactly which "extensions" Peter Egner is
referring to. As far as I can remember there are none. Although most
individuals use the GR form, tools in fact use the PR form internally. When
you run an analysis in SDT, it creates a PR file then analyses that. GEODE
keeps the SDL in PR form with embedded comments about the graphics. This is
the same as the CIF format.

All tools that I know (in alphabetical order: Cinderella, GEODE, SDT) can
import and export PR, and can create graphics from PR (though you may need
to tidy up).

I say "all tools that I know", because I was informed recently that the
Melba tool from Austalia has been relaunched with current SDL support, but
I have not had a chance to check it out.
