CATIA version 4 can read and write models using BOTH the version 3 (map
and fic--) AND the version 4 (--.model) file conventions.  The rule which
it uses by default is that if there is a file with the name "map" is a
directory it tries to use the map/fic convention and otherwise is uses the
.model extension convention.  If the model is written with CATIA version 4
or a version 4 utility, the date inside the model will be version 4 data no
matter which naming convention is used.

If you are using version 3 CATEXP to export models from version 3 and then
using version 4 CATIMP to import them into your version 4 system and you
want to change the naming convention during the import process, then the
CATIMP "output file" must be a directory that is not using the old naming
convention.  That is, it must not contain a Unix file named "map".

Do NOT just delete the "map" file from a directory using the the version
3 map/fic convention or you will have very great difficulty accessing the
data in the "fic--" files.

Look up the "catia.MIGR_MAP" and "catia.MIGR_SEQUENTIAL" declarations in the
"Declaration Quick Reference for UNIX Workstations" for more information.

The version 4 CATDATA utility, by the way, has an option to override the
default established by "catia.MIGR_MAP".  On the English language catutil
panel for CATDATA/copy, there is a "MAP FORMAT     NO/YES" option.  Selecting
"YES" forces CATDATA to use the version 3 map/fic naming convention even if
the "output file" directory does not contain a "map" file.  This option is
there so that one can copy models to an empty directory using the version 3
naming convention.  You usually want "MAP FORMAT" to be "NO".  CATIMP does
not have this option.
