The CGS format is established by Kyoto Municipal Textile
User environment and conditions：
Research Institute, which determines strictly the
procedures and formats for transferring the data for
figured cloths which had been controlled with punch cards
called ""Mongami"" to floppy discs. Most of current data of
figured cloths in the floppy discs are run in this format,
and it is not too much to say that the format is de facto
domestic unified standard.
In addition to that, our Institute actively utilizes the
information of Mongami transferred to floppy discs and has
created a group of software tools to make substantial
modification to the information after preparation of
Mongami which was impossible before, and to simulate the
weaving of textiles on computer in advance of actual
weaving and display the results. These tools which are
called ""CGS Disc Utility Pro Series"" were lent out to
the textile industry and found ready favor. To date, the
total number of 3000 has been lent out. Since numerous
additional functions have been requested by users, we are
now making effort to address it.
At present, this series includes more than 20 softwares.
And at present, we producted software for CGS and CGSII,
and this series corresponden to PC/AT windows computer
