In experimental settings, I output a csv file and an excel file. The excel file looks good after running the expeirment, but just a quick question about the csv file. There are a lot of extra columns in the csv file I’m not used to seeing (with previous psychopy experiments I’ve built) that have to do with the internal trial counter for the loops. There is a column for myloop.thisRepN, myloop.thisTrialN, myloop.thisN, and myloop.thisIndex. I’m not used to seeing these columns output to the csv file. Is there a setting for this somewhere? I can’t find it, but I would prefer to (easily) exclude these from my csv file if possible. I have a lot of loops and it makes it harder to parse if I want to use the csv files for parsing.
Also, I wonder if it’s possible to spit out separate csv files for different loops (rather than separate worksheets in one excel workbook)? If it’s not easily doable, no biggie, just curious.
Lastly, I also have a question about timestamps. I’ve seen some posts about writing timestamps to the data with code components… I’m just wondering if there’s an easy way to tell builder to put a timestamp for the start of each trial in the csv files, or if it’s necessary to write that into a code component? If code component, I will look more carefully at other posts.
Thanks so much!
