Rstreams reads in binary data (in the non-text meaning of binary). I guess
most of us (???) have dedicated software for data collection though..
We use a dataformat that is simple: all the data are written as two-byte
integers, channelwise.

reading in the data for analysis is a simple

 s <- openstream("U:/d1x001.eeg", "read")
 dat<-matrix(readint(s, n=33*3000000, size = 2, signed = F, swapbytes =
FALSE), ncol=33, byrow=T)   # for 33 channel eeg, 3000000 datapoints (R
complaints about memory here)
 plot(dat[1:1000,31])  # plot the 31'th channel

The additional software would then cut up the matrix into (a list) of

almost looks too easy doesn't it...
