Is there a definition of the Backus-Naur form for the MSLICE format? I’m having trouble parsing them in an unambiguous way.
sorry, but I don’t understand your question.
MSlice reads in processed inelastic neutron scattering data files, which are all
hdf5 derived. It understands either the legacy
nxspe format which is a simple table of counts vs energy transfer for each detector, or the Mantid standard
nxs Nexus which contains more metadata. It also reads in 3-column
xye type text files where it assumes that the
x-column is energy transfer,
y is counts and
e is the standard error in the counts.
Is this what you mean?
Oh, ok, then actually my question was about the
nxs formats. I think what happened is I got a
nxs format mixed together, and I couldn’t parse both of them with the same parser.
Sorry for the noise!
