The INDEX directory contains an index for this volume
(INDEX.TAB). Accompanying the *.TAB file is a PDS label (INDEX.LBL).
The *.TAB file is an ASCII file. Each line (or record) in
the *.TAB file contains information about a single data file in the
volume. Each line is made up of nine comma-delimited fixed-length
fields. Most fields contain character strings, which are enclosed by
double quotes. Other fields contain integer data, which are NOT
enclosed by quotes.
The *.LBL label files describe the format and content of
each of the respective *.TAB files at the byte level. Simply
stated, the fields are:
path name to the PDS detached label for each data file
unique file name for the data file within this data set
start date/time of the data in the file
stop date/time of the data in the file
creation date/time for the original file
