- Update README to use Markdown and be more concise. Reference the wiki
  where it makes sense so there is only one place we need to update
  when things change
- Delete BUILD--this file was basically 'how to use sbt', and involved
  sbt commands we never even really need to use. Commonly use commands
  are put in the README

# Daffodil

## Introduction

Daffodil is the open source implementation of the [Data Format Description Language (DFDL)](, a specification created by the [Open Grid Forum]( DFDL is capable of describing many data formats, including textual and binary, commercial record-oriented, scientific and numeric, modern and legacy, and many industry standards. It leverages XML technology and concepts, using a subset of W3C XML schema type system and annotations to describe such data. Daffodil uses this description to parse data into an infoset represented as XML or JSON, easily capable of ingestion, validation, and transformation.

For more information about Daffodil, see the [Daffodil Wiki](
