Chapter 11.4 Interval Fire Mechanism Issue

Post by 2015shanbhvi » Fri May 27, 2016 6:04 pm

Hello Everyone,

I am new to using NEURON and I want to create a network using neurons.

I wrote the NMODL code from Listing 11.1, which describes the IntervalFire model, into a file called invlfire.mod, but I am stuck in section 11.4.
The book says that once the file is compiled, launching NEURON should yield a special message notifying me that the mechanism is ready to use.
I am having trouble with the compiling part.
I have visited this page: http://www.neuron.yale.edu/neuron/stati ... macos.html
and I have dragged the mod file onto the mknrndll icon, and I am supposed to see a dll file created. I only see a folder labeled x86_64 in the same directory as the mod file.

Is this supposed to happen?

Thanks for reading this,

Vinay

Sorry about that old documentation. For several years now, compiling mod files under OS X has been putting the results of compilation in an x86_64 subdirectory. Don't worry about that--just start NEURON in the directory where you see the x86_64 subdirectory, and NEURON will automatically discover and load the compiled mechanisms.
