As far as I know, there's no written description anywhere. We don't even have anything internal for BBO programmers to use.

Hi,

#1 see Barmar's Comment, but ...
#2 there are several Command Line Converters from / to pbn format, e.g. see Richard Pavliceks side,
assuming you want to do some programming, I would go this route
My guess is that Pavliceks Converter had Input from Gitleman as he developed it, it is a DOS tool, 32 bit,
but should work with Win10, I did not test / check this, but it did so for Win7
#3 there was a thread, giving a short summary, describing the common features, enough for most things,
Cascade was the author of the thread (looking at the file content, it is ASCII, you should be able to reengineer
most common options)

With kind regards
Marlowe

That page is mostly about URL parameters for the handviewer.html application, which aren't the same as LIN files. There's an example of LIN format near the end, but no explanation of the fields.

For instance, in the URL, you specify each hand separately, with e=XXX, w=XXX, n=XXX, s=XXX parameters, but in a LIN file you specify the entire deal as md|#southand,westhand,northhand,easthand| (the # at the beginning is replaced with 1-4 to indicate the dealer, and easthand can be omitted if the other 3 hands are filled in).
