optional, single



Inside the <gasdefinitions> section happens the definition of the different breathing gases used by the <owner> of the UDDF file.

<gasdefinitions> stands after the <divesite> section and before <profiledata>.

The only element inside <gasdefinitions> is <mix> which can be repeated any times.

The <gasdefinitions> section can be omitted. If <gasdefinitions> doesn't occur, the executing software has to set air as the breathing gas to be used. Of course, a breathing gas consumption calculation cannot be performed in case of a missing <gasdefinitions> section.
