GLOBSET Serialization

The serialization of IDSET structures, as specified in section, requires each GLOBSET structure, as specified in section, within the IDSET, as specified in section, to be serialized. The GLOBCNT ranges, as specified in section, within the GLOBSET structure are serialized by using special encoding commands to compress the amount of data for each GLOBCNT pair. This section specifies details about how to encode and decode a GLOBSET during IDSET serialization.

Because compression is achieved by using a common byte stack to encode or decode the high order bytes of all GLOBCNT values, the encoder or decoder MUST construct a byte stack before implementing any of these commands.
