The dataharvester is a small tool that is capable of reading from and writing to several different file formats. Currently supported file formats are ROOT, HBook, HDF5, XML, Sqlite3, and a text file format (also gzipped). A plugin mechanism decouples the file-format specific "backends" from the main library. All data are internally represented as "heterogenous hierarchic tuples"; no other data structure exists in the dataharvester.
Release Notes: Filters and Manipulators were introduced.
