EMF (Enhanced MetaFile) and raw are terms for simultaneous peripheral operations online file formats used in printing by the Windows operating system. When a print job is sent to the printer, if it is already printing another file, the computer reads the new file and stores it, usually on the hard disk or in memory, for printing at a later time. Spooling allows multiple print jobs to be given to the printer at one time.
An MS-Windows nhanced etafile is like an ordinary CGM metafile but with extensions that make it specific to MS-Windows, and it will not work on most other machines without conversion.
Enhanced Metafile. A graphics file format, originated by Microsoft Corporation, that has many advantages over the older Windows metafiles ( WMF). Images in EMF format can be resized without distortion and loss of detail. Available for download for selected diagrams (e.g., subsystem and terminator diagrams). Many diagrams displayed on the National ITS Architecture CD-ROM and web site are actually in GIF format.
