What is bootstrap.dat and what does it do?

To speed up the process of syncing with the blockchain, a file called bootstrap.dat can be used instead of having your wallet download the blockchain block by block.
The bootstrap.dat file contains the latest blockchain information needed to have your wallet synced and up-to-date. By copying it to your $PAC folder, the wallet will pick it up and import the content.
