Python EyeLinkParser

About

The python-eyelinkparser module provides a framework to parse EyeLink data files in .asc format, that is, the format that you get after converting an .edf file with edf2asc. This module is mostly for personal use, and is not very well documented.

Expected messages

By default, the parser assumes that particular messages are sent to the logfile. If you use different messages, you need to override functions in _eyelinkparser.EyeLinkParser. This is not explained here, but you can look n the source code to see how it works.

Trial start:

start_trial [trialid]

Trial end:

end_trial
stop_trial

Variables:

var [name] [value]

Start of a period of continuous data:

start_phase [name]
phase [name]

End of a period of continuous data:

end_phase [name]
stop_phase [name]

Example
