Signal Scripts



Export

Export covers converting data to a different format; for merging or otherwise altering data files, see the Editing section.

 

Merge to a single frame (05/10)

Merge to a single frame

MergeToSingleFrame.zip

This script will produce a new data file of up to 2GB with all of the frames from the selected source file merged into a single frame of continuous data.

This script requires Signal v2.16 or higher.

Text output of overdrawn frames (05/10)

Text output of overdrawn frames

OverdrawnAsText.zip

This script will create a spreadsheet-format text file of data from all frames in the frame display list of the current data file. The user nominates the channel to extract the text values from and the script collects the channel data from all frames in the display list. The user is prompted to save the spreadsheet output as a text file, which can then be opened in Signal or a spreadsheet program.

This script requires Signal v2.16 or higher.

Dump a single channel as text (09/08)

Dump a single channel as text

framecols.zip

This script generates a text dump of a single channel of data to the log window. Data from each frame is put into a separate column of text within the overall grid of values, rather than the normal Signal text output format with each channel forming a separate column.

Customised text output of measurements (05/10)

Customised text output of measurements

DoRMSText.zip

This script is an example of customised text output to the Log window. The script prompts you to open a data file and then presents a dialog that allows selection of frames and a time range. The script measures RMS amplitude from visible waveform channels in the nominated frames and prints results for each channel in columns ready to open in a spreadsheet package.

This script requires Signal v2.16 or higher.

Export frames to individual text files (05/10)

Export frames to individual text files

FrameTextExport.zip

This script will export each frame as an individual text file. The user sets a path and file name template for the text files from a dialog when the script is first run.

Convert CFS data files to WAV format (04/03)

Convert CFS data files to WAV format

cfstowav.zip

This script converts waveforms in a data file to 8 bit or 16 bit WAV format. Waveform channels may then be played with many standard tools.

Some of these scripts have come from users rather than the CED team. If you have a script that you would like to offer to fellow users via this page, please tell Tim Bergel. We provide some scripts for Spike2 too.

These scripts are stored as WinZip files, myscript.zip, except where they are shown as signal\scripts\myscript.s2s. Those latter files were installed with Signal and signal stands for the directory in which you installed Signal. See the summaries by clicking on the description in the side menu. Then you can down-load them by clicking on the filename.

Privacy policy

CED, through this site, does two things that relate to privacy. We would like to explain them.

Emails from down-loads

We offer free down-loads of many files on our site, from test programs to complete install files for updated versions of major packages like Spike2 and Signal.

When customers wish to take a down-load of a major package, we ask a few questions, including their name, email address, the serial number of the software for which they seek an upgrade and whether they would like an automatic email whenever we update the product. This information is emailed back to CED when they access the final down-load screen. Within this email, your browser transmits the type and version of browser you are using, and the screen resolution you are running.

The reasons why we take and keep this information are that it is useful for our software development team to know who has taken the latest versions, and it is useful for our web site development team to know which browsers people are using to view our site, and what resolution they have their screens set to.

Cookies

When people down-load a major package, we try to write a cookie, a small file in your computer, that records your name, serial number of the software package, and the version you are down-loading. These files have a lifetime of one year.

The reasons for storing this information are firstly that if you ask for another down-load some other time, your details are read from the cookie and are pre-written into the form, to save you looking them up again. The other reason is that next time you access our site, your browser looks through your CED cookies and compares the versions down-loaded with the latest version numbers read from our site. If there is a later version of a product you have already down-loaded, we tell you on the home page screen, so you know that it is worth going to the down-load page again.

None of this information is ever given to anyone outside CED. ×
