Biomet Database Tool (BDT)
Desription: BDT is a tool that can be used to load, analyze, and visualize data from databases and other data files (.mat or text). Funding has been providedby the US Department of Energy USDOE-TCP Grant #DE-FG02-03ER6384 (T.J. Griffis and J.MBaker) and the National Science Foundation Career Award, NSF-ATM-0546476 (T.J. Griffis).
BDT comes in two forms, m-file and compiled versions. Both are provided here. The compiled version does require the Matlab runtime environment to run (download MCRInstaller.exe - 146 MB) and the 32-bit version of Matlab for Windows. The compiled version has been compiled in Matlab 7.4 (R2007a) using version 4.6 of the compiler. The runtime environment is common to all compiled Matlab functions so if you have already installed it or have the compiler you do not have to install it again (unless using an out of date version).
- Matlab 7.0+
- Database Toolbox (for database related functions)
- logindlg.m (for restricted or non-ODBC databases)
- Windows XP/NT/Vista or Mac OS X or Linux
- MySQL or Microsoft Access databases (32-bit Windows required for MS Access databases)
The requirements listed are what BDT was tested on. Older versions of Matlab and other operating systems may very well work but they have not been tested.
BDT Filters (BDT_Filters.m)
Description: BDT_Filters.m is a file which contains all the filters used in BDT's Filter sutility. Directions and examples for creating/adding your own functions/filters can be found by typing 'help BDT_Filters' into the command prompt or editing the file.
Login Dialog (logindlg.m)
Description: logindlg is used by BDT, though is not restricted to use by BDT only, to get login information for locked databases. The password field replaces everything typed with asterisks for visual security.
Database Manager (dbmanager.m)
- Database Toolbox (m-file version only)
- insert2.m (m-file version only, ODBC)
- insert3.m (m-file version only, MySQL databases)
- Template.mdb (both versions)
Database Query Tool (db_query.m)
Description: The Database Query Tool is a versatile function for integrating database into your scripts and functions while avoiding many of the complexities of database queries (such as SQL statements).
- Database Toolbox
TGA Status Scripts
Description: tga_status.m converts TGA 100A Status values into binary values where each number in the binary number represents a unique error. tga_status_message.m uses tga_status.m to convert the decimal status code into a plain English error message.
