The *.ontology files may be flat in the sense that they are plain text. But they are also hierarchical and encoded.

By flat, I specifically meant lines with tab-delimited columns. I realize that would eliminate some of the semantic relationships between terms, but for some purposes that is acceptable. I do not not have expertise to deal with directed acyclic graph structures and how to represent them in a simple lookup table.

Off to write a parser...
