no
Definition: 

An generic class representing a data file.

Explanatory Notes: 

DataFile is not abstract, but it should be extended into more specific classes for data files (e.g. RectangularDataFile) when such exist. In cases where no appropriate extension exists, but there is need to document a data file, the DataFile class itself should be used. It therefore holds a few basic properties
