bpc_ReadAxg is an Igor Pro extension (XOP) that allows one to import Axograph binary files (including Axograph X) into Igor Pro.
Axograph is a popular data acquisition and analysis software, especially on the Mac platform.
bpc_ReadAxg borrows from the public domain AxographIO sample code kindly provided by Dr. J. Clements, the developer of Axograph.
bpc_ReadAxg is compatible with Igor Pro 32bit running on Windows 32bit or 64bit, it requires Igor Pro 5 or later.

If you want to try out bpc_ReadAxg, please copy 'bpc_ReadAbf.xop' to your 'Igor Extensions' folder.
You may copy 'M_Axg.ipf' to your 'Igor Procedures' folder. 'M_Axg.ipf' extends Igor's "Data" menu by the two entries
"Import Axg file into single 2D wave" and "Import Axg file into multiple 1D waves". Feel free to adapt this procedure file so that it suits your needs.

Please note that it is recommended to copy 'bpc_ReadAxg .xop' and 'M_Axg.ipf' to the respective target folders located in the
Igor Pro User Files folder (which defaults to 'C:\Documents and Settings\%user%\My Documents\WaveMetrics\Igor Pro 6 User Files' on Windows XP) of
each user and not to the Igor Pro application folder (i.e. 'C:\Program Files\...') itself.

I tested the import of a number of Axograph data files and it worked fine.
If you experience that this XOP is not correctly importing your data files, please contact the author (Holger Taschenberger, Dept. of Molecular Neurobiology, Max Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine, Goettingen, taschenberger at gmx dot net) and send a sample data file together with a description of how to reproduce the error.

Please remember:
bpc_ReadAxg works only with 32bit Igor running on 32bit or 64bit Windows. It does not and never will work with 64bit Igor or on a Mac.
