If it's critical to work you'll submit as a paper, please consider engaging us as a co-author. If you make money from it, you need to develop an agreement with Oregon State University and Boston University.
Contact for more on any of this.

  • It probably will break. Each user finds new ways to do this. We'll try to help as much as we can, but we're not a software company.

  • Improve it! But when you do, please use Git to document your change so others can benefit.
    If you're doing a lot of this, please contact Robert ( so you can become a registered Git user in the lab and make your improvements part of the "sanctioned" main branch.

  • Share! If you do cool stuff, please send us results so we can share with others how it's being used.
