    I've looked at the data and it is hopelessly non-standard. First of all, there is no "format 5" - they've obviously created their own text-based version of something like the differential format. ...

    Mind you, it was (and is) intended to provide a reasonably accurate shape for surfacing calculations. As far as edging goes, I'd only expect it to work for a subset of rimless mountings - and you'd...

    Yes - I think it would have to be zero, as would Rx prism (or a ray couldn't be normal to the PRP). Now, I am thinking that "normal to the PRP" implies "normal, cx and cc."
