Can anyone tell me how to import .ibw (igor binary wave) into Mathematica?

  • $\begingroup$ Do you have any links to discriptions of this format? $\endgroup$ – Sjoerd C. de Vries Jun 11 '15 at 10:48
  • $\begingroup$ @SjoerdC.deVries. It is a proprietary format used by IGOR Pro app. Here is a link $\endgroup$ – m_goldberg Jun 11 '15 at 11:24
  • $\begingroup$ A possibility would be to use R through RLink. There is a package to read *.ibw files into R (IgorR) that you may be able to use through RLink. The file format specification is available in WaveMetrics Technical Note 003 (link a zip file on their FTP site with C code as well) but the format is complicated enough that I wouldn't want to re-implement an import routine. $\endgroup$ – MarcoB Jun 11 '15 at 15:55
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you that helps a lot :o). Now I can import ibw in Mathematica. $\endgroup$ – Lacour Jun 12 '15 at 12:36
  • $\begingroup$ I'm glad it helped. To benefit the community, would you post an answer to your own question detailing the steps to take, so other people will be able to find this if they have your same problem?
