New Structure for Export Tables/Import Tables

Export tables/import tables with a new structure can now be used to save data clusters in database tables and application buffers in the shared memory using EXPORT.

In this structure, the field CLUSTD has the data type RAWSTRING (BLOB) and can save data cluster in a single row. The columns required for the administration of a data cluster across multiple rows, SRTF2 and CLUSTR, are now obsolete.

The new structure is recommended for export tables/import tables.
