IgorR

Build Status

Introduction

The IgorR package for R provides routines to read binary files generated by Igor Pro.

This includes both the standalone .ibw Igor Binary Wave format (v2 and the latest v5) and the .pxp Packed Experiment Format including both waves and variables. In addition the package provides functions to read files generated by the Neuromatic analysis suite written by Jason Rothman for Igor Pro.

Details

Details of the ibw file format were derived from the Igor Technical Note 003.
