Columns: n short int returned by type and used for Cast, e.g. 9h$3 c character used lower-case for Cast and upper-case for Tok and Load CSV sz size in bytes inf infinity (no math on temporal types); 0Wh is 32767h

RO: read only; RW: read-write

Above, f is an applicable value.

Nested types are 77+t (e.g. 78 is boolean. 96 is time.)
