The required file format version declaration specifies the unique version of the NI text pattern file format to which the pattern complies using the following syntax:
where major and minor are decimal numbers.
The following conditions apply to the file format version declaration:
The file format version declaration must be the first declaration in the pattern file.
The current version of the file format is 1.1.
You must add the pattern name to the export declaration to use the pattern name in the import declaration of another pattern.
Vectors start loading in FVM and CVM only when you explicitly export the pattern name or when the pattern name is the target of a jump, call, or looping opcode. If you do not export the pattern name, vectors start loading in LVM.
Pattern files with a file format version of 1.0 always export the pattern name, and vectors always start loading in FVM and CVM.
