       contsink,  eventcounter, eventgenerator, eventlogger, eventselect, eventsink, eventsource,
       messagesource, viewevents - utility applications which can be  used  together  with  other
       MUSIC-aware applications in multi-simulations

       This  manual  page  documents  briefly  a set of MUSIC-aware utility applications provided
       together with MUSIC library.

       eventcounter receives spikes through a MUSIC input port, counts all spikes for each  index
       and writes the frequencies to a set of files with names prefix rank suffix

       eventgenerator generates spikes from a Poisson distribution.

       eventlogger logs spikes from a MUSIC port.

       eventselect  receives  events from an input port of width n_units and sends events for the
       subset of id:s specified in the file units

       eventsink receives spikes through a MUSIC input port and writes these to a  set  of  files
       with names prefix rank suffix

       eventsource  reads spikes from a set of files with names prefix rank suffix and propagates
       these spikes through a MUSIC output port.

       viewevents reads spikes from a MUSIC input port  and  displays  them  as  a  3D  graphical


       The  utilities  follow  the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -b ticks, --maxbuffered ticks
              Specify maximal amount of data buffered.

       -f freq, --frequency
              Specify average frequency (default 10 Hz).

       -h, --help
              Show usage information.

       -i, --indextype
              Select global (default) or  local  indices.  (Used  for  testing  and  benchmarking

       -l latency, --acclatency latency
              Specify acceptable data latency (s).

       -m type, --imaptype type
              Select linear (default) or roundrobin index map.

       -s scaling, --scaletime scaling
              Specify   real   time  to  simulated  time  scale  factor  (s).   If  omitted,  the
              visualization runs at full speed.

       -t timestep, --timestep timestep
              Specify time between tick() calls (default 0.01 s).

       -T title, --title title
              Specify window title.
