Installation

Installing files on HP-UX

Unpack file meg-pd-1.2-4.hpux.tar.gz into /opt/neuromag by issuing the following commands as root:

   cd /
   gunzip DIRECTORY/meg-pd-1.2-4.hpux.tar.gz
   tar -xf DIRECTORY/meg-pd-1.2-4.hpux.tar

Installing files on Linux

Install the package issuing the following command as root:

   rpm -i meg-pd-1.2-10.i386.rpm

In some Linux systems, you may need to give the following command lines before starting Matlab:

   export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1
   export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/neuromag/lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu

Using Matlab 7 and Matlab 7 versions of Fiff Access is recommended for modern Linux distributions. The 64-bit versions are compiled using Matlab Version 7.6 (R2008a). Contact MathWorks for information on compatibility between different Matlab versions.

Setting Matlab path

Add the following line to the definition of the path in the file $MATLAB/toolbox/local/pathdef.m:
   '/opt/neuromag/meg-pd-1.2/:',...
Alternatively, you can issue the command addpath /opt/neuromag/meg-pd-1.2 in the beginning of a Matlab session.

Getting help

The functions and their use is described in the manual.

You can get a list of the commands using the Matlab help command

   help meg_pd_1.2
and help about the individual commands with, e.g.,
   help loadfif
