Data import/export
Home Documentation Smile Computing Data import/export  
The data that you have to process may come in several formats. Usually, 1d arrays are stored as ASCII files for convenience. Higher-dimensional data may come as ASCII files - which may use a variety of separators - or as binary files, which can be generated by C or FORTRAN codes. Those files may store real numbers either as single (4 bytes) or double precision (8 bytes).

In SmileLab you can import from ASCII and from binary files, and you also can import data from images, and make the gray levels of an image into a 2d matrix.

Additional extensions handle other specific data file formats: a specific extension for SmileLab supports reading FITS files.

See how to use each kind of data file in the pages below.
