## Input format for the code¶

Currently, the code only accepts plain binary data. To be more precise, suppose you have N channels

$c_0, c_1, ... , c_N$

And if you assume that $$c_i(t)$$ is the value of channel $$c_i$$ at time t, then your datafile should be a giant raw file with values

$c_0(0), c_1(0), ... , c_N(0), c_0(1), ..., c_N(1), ... c_N(T)$

This is simply the flatten version of your recordings matrix, with size N x T

Note

The values can be saved in your own format (int16, uint16, int8, float32). You simply need to specify that to the code

## Future plans¶

Hopefully in a near future, we plan to enhance the interface between SpyKING CIRCUS and various file formats. Most likely using Neo, we should be able to read/write the data without a need for a proper raw file.
