       This  manual  page  documents  briefly  a  set  of  MUSIC-aware utility
       applications provided together with MUSIC library.

       eventcounter receives spikes through a MUSIC  input  port,  counts  all
       spikes for each index and writes the frequencies to a set of files with
       names prefix rank suffix

       eventgenerator generates spikes from a Poisson distribution.

       eventlogger logs spikes from a MUSIC port.

       eventselect receives events from an input port  of  width  n_units  and
       sends events for the subset of id:s specified in the file units

       eventsink  receives  spikes through a MUSIC input port and writes these
       to a set of files with names prefix rank suffix

       eventsource reads spikes from a set of files  with  names  prefix  rank
       suffix and propagates these spikes through a MUSIC output port.

       viewevents  reads spikes from a MUSIC input port and displays them as a
       3D graphical representation.


       The utilities follow the usual  GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options  starting  with  two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary of options is
       included below.

       -b ticks, --maxbuffered ticks
              Specify maximal amount of data buffered.

       -f freq, --frequency
              Specify average frequency (default 10 Hz).

       -h, --help
              Show usage information.

       -i, --indextype
              Select global (default) or local indices. (Used for testing  and
              benchmarking purposes.)

       -l latency, --acclatency latency
              Specify acceptable data latency (s).

       -m type, --imaptype type
              Select linear (default) or roundrobin index map.

       -s scaling, --scaletime scaling
              Specify  real  time  to  simulated  time  scale  factor (s).  If
              omitted, the visualization runs at full speed.

       -t timestep, --timestep timestep
              Specify time between tick() calls (default 0.01 s).

       -T title, --title title
              Specify window title.
