Netstate or ASCII files for in-python analysis?

Post by vmind »

Version 0.5 seems to use boost binary archives to store the network states. I never used these. Do you recommend extracting netstate in python directly for analysis, or rather saving the states individually from the connections (ie reimplementing the old save_network_state)?

I would recommend saving the data you are interested in directly into text files. To that end, Auryn objects will continue to implement write_to_file functions which are human readable. The change to write per default seemed necessary since in large simulations one is often only interested in the plastic connections and how they changed and maybe the state of one particular NeuronGroup state ... I hope the inconvenience is not to big by this API change :roll:
