documentation about NEURON too, but I only need an answer to a very specific
question. How can I drill down to just the items I'm interested in?"
A: Frequently the key to solving a programming problem is knowing the name of a
variable procedure, or object class. If you can make a reasonable guess about the
name you're interested in, try the alphabetical listing of keywords
or the "Quick Index"
http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/static/ ... rence.html
But if you don't have any idea what something is called, those indices may not be very
helpful, because it may be a long time before you accidentally stumble on what you need.
When you are clueless, a better place to look is in the hierarchical index
especially near the bottom, where you'll find these entries
- Code: Select all
ObjectOrientedProgramming functions syntax
CompileTimeOptions functions keywords
Section globals mechanisms
classes ion pointprocesses
The items under neuron.exe / general pertain to general programming issues, and
the items under neuron.exe / neuron have more to do with building and managing
models of neurons per se. For example, if you want to know if there is a function that can
be used to change the working directory, you'd look at
neuron.exe / general / functions
but if you are looking for a class definition that can be used to display the branched
architecture of a cell, you'd look at
neuron.exe / neuron / classes
