Description

Import a TXT-file (ASCII file) or a DAT-file (binary file) produced by a Daybreak reader into R. The import of the DAT-files is limited to the file format described for the software TLAPLLIC v.3.2 used for a Daybreak, model 1100.

Arguments

file

character or list (required): path and file name of the file to be imported. Alternatively a list of file names can be provided or just the path a folder containing measurement data. Please note that the specific, common, file extension (txt) is likely leading to function failures during import when just a path is provided.

raw

logical (with default): if the input is a DAT-file (binary) a data.table::data.table instead of the RLum.Analysis object can be returned for debugging purposes.

verbose

logical (with default): enables or disables terminal feedback

txtProgressBar

logical (with default): enables or disables txtProgressBar.

Value

A list of RLum.Analysis objects (each per position) is provided.

[BETA VERSION] This function still needs to be tested properly. In particular the function has underwent only very rough rests using a few files.
