and on different kind of nbody files format (nemo, Gadget binaries 1 and 2, Gadget hdf5, Ramses). By using this API, 
a user could write only one analysis program which will work on all known files format supported by UNSIO. 
It's not necessary anymore to know how is implemented a file format, UNSIO will do transparently and automatically 
all the hard work for you ! With UNSIO, you will spend less time to develop your analysis program. 
UNSIO comes with an integrated sqlite3 database which can be used to retrieve automatically all your data
