Detail description of ARL packed meteorological data format

Where can I find the detail description of ARL packed meteorological data format? I remember there is a webpage of it in ARL website when I wrote the decoding code in MeteoInfo. The job was done two years ago. Now I want to check some information about it, but can't find the webpage.

You can use one of the PC HYSPLIT utilities for reading and writing meteorological data as a starting point for writing your own program. Try using the chk_data.f program in the /hysplit4/data2arl/source directory of the PC installation of HYSPLIT.
