igor: interface for reading binary IGOR files.
GNU General Public License, version 3+
Python parsers for Igor Binary Waves (.ibw) and Packed Experiment (.pxp) files written by WaveMetrics’ IGOR Pro software.
If igor already exists in your package manager’s repository, you should install igor in the usual way.
# emerge -av app-portage/layman # layman --add wtk # emerge -av sci-misc/igor
If you’re installing by hand or packaging igor for another distribution, you’ll need the following dependencies:
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
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.igorpy as igor
in your calling code.
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.
