This function was added to read a particular file downloaded from the Fleet Monitoring website (Reference 1). The format was inferred through examination of the file and a brief study of a document (Reference 2) that describes the format. Not all fields are read by this function; see Reference 3 for a full list and note that the author would be happy to add new entries (but not to spend hours entering then all).
