Python parsers for Igor Binary Waves (.ibw) and Packed Experiment (.pxp) files written by WaveMetrics’ IGOR Pro software.

Installation

Packages

If igor already exists in your package manager’s repository, you should install igor in the usual way.

Gentoo

I’ve packaged igor for Gentoo. You need layman and my wtk overlay. Install with:

# emerge -av app-portage/layman
# layman --add wtk
# emerge -av sci-misc/igor

Dependencies

If you’re installing by hand or packaging igor for another distribution, you’ll need the following dependencies:

Package Debian Gentoo
Numpy python-numpy dev-python/numpy
Matplotlib python-matplotlib dev-python/matplotlib
Nose python-nose dev-python/nose

Installing by hand

igor is available as a Git repository:

$ git clone git://tremily.us/igor.git

See the homepage for details. To install the checkout, run the standard:

$ python setup.py install

You can also automate this installation with pip:

$ pip install igor

Usage

See the docstrings and unit tests for examples using the Python API. The package also installs to scripts, igorbinarywave.py and igorpackedexperiment.py which can be used to dump files to stdout. For details on their usage, use the --help option. For example:

$ igorbinarywave.py --help

For users transitioning from igor.py, there’s a compatibility module exposing the old interface. Just change:

import igor

to:

import igor.igorpy as igor

in your calling code.

Testing

Run internal unit tests with:

$ nosetests --with-doctest --doctest-tests igor test

The data in the test/data directory is in the Git repository, but it is not bundled with the source code. If you want the test data, you’ll have to clone the Git repository or download a snapshot.
