Interfacing with External Resources

Top  Previous  Next

FreeFlyer includes several mechanisms for interfacing with other tools and resources. The FileInterface object and other string parsing capabilities allow FreeFlyer to read in any arbitrarily formatted external file. The MatlabInterface is used to establish communications between MATLAB® and FreeFlyer. The FreeFlyer DataBase object enables connectivity to Database Management Systems (DBMS). The Socket Object allows you to send and receive data to and from a remote program via TCP/IP. The Email object allows data local to FreeFlyer to be transmitted to an external user via email.
