This pages contains information on the attributes of the _input_layers check file. This file is always written in the MapInfo .mif / .mid file format. No spatial objects are written into the .mif file (these are all "None" objects. However, the tabular data in the .mid file contains information about the input files that have been opened. As the .mid file is a simple comma separated file, this file can be easily scripted.
