Yes, but that is seldom necessary.Gannier wrote:is there a way to create new units?
That would be surprising. Have you tried (newton) or (N)? NMODL's units definitions are based on the list used by the UNIX/Linux units command. Before deciding you have to define new units, take a moment to discover if what you need already exists. Please read the itemI want to simulate the force developed by a contractile cell with the force in Newton but this unit doesn't exist in Neuron
Q: What units does NEURON use for current, concentration, etc.?
in the FAQ list
where you will find a link to version 1.44 of units.dat, the database of units definitions that has been used by most modern UNIX/Linux distributions since April, 2005.
Note: units -V
will print a message that includes the location of the units.dat file (usually it's in /usr/share)
