I think you are talking about the Surfer Grid File Format, which is
different from the Golden Software Grid Formats (although Surfer is a
Golden Software product). I am working from Appendix C of the Surfer
8 User's Guide (which describes all three formats, and some others).
The only version information they have for the GS Grids is the
signature ('DSAA' for ASCII, 'DSBB' for binary).
I have been thinking about implementing the Surfer format as well, but
haven't gotten around to it yet. Now I'm glad I hadn't, since I might
have implemented v7 only. Thanks for the heads up.
