-This command line tool extracts spike information from [[spk|binary spike raster files]] and converts them in the more digestible [[ras]] format. Binary files provide a significant simulation speed advantage over the old [[ras]] file format and allow random access to spike information. ''​aube''​ is capable of efficiently merging multiple [[spk]] files and export ​select temporal ranges from it to the more digestible [[ras]] format. It can be efficiently incorporated into Linux command-line and pipe based work flow and works flawlessly with [[gnuplot]]. The tool included with Auryn releases (ver. >0.6.1) and can be found in the ''​tools''​ directory. +This command line tool extracts spike information from [[spk|binary spike raster files]] and converts them in the more digestible [[ras]] format. Binary files provide a significant simulation speed advantage over the old [[ras]] file format, take less disk space and allow random access to temporal chunks of spike information. ''​aube''​ is capable of efficiently merging ​the multiple [[spk]] files generated by parallel simulations ​and exports only select temporal ranges from it. It can be efficiently incorporated into Linux command-line and pipe based work flow and works flawlessly with [[gnuplot]]. The tool included with Auryn releases (ver. >0.6.1) and can be found in the ''​tools''​ directory. ​For users doing their analysis in Python, the [[python tools]] offer an alternative to decoding spk files. These tools allow to directly import binary spiking data into Python without the detour via aube.

 ''​aube''​ is [[manual:​compileauryn|compiled]] automatically with the rest of Auryn and located in the tools directory. It can be installed to your systems default install location (e.g. ''/​usr/​local/​bin''​) with the help of ''​make install''​. Otherwise you will have to ensure yourself that ''​aube''​ is in the PATH for the following examples to work. ''​aube''​ is [[manual:​compileauryn|compiled]] automatically with the rest of Auryn and located in the tools directory.
