Katharina (CC) has a reader for it.

data is organized in dirname/dirname.EEG.Poly5 dirname/dirname.EEG.csv (does not contain all events) dirname/Recors.xses (this is an XML file with header information) TODO - extend ft_filetype for the Poly5 extension and for the directory. - extend dataset2files - implement support in ft_read_header, data and event

@Katharina, please get the latest fieldtrip version according to the instructions at The "quickly access" is sufficient, no reason to fork on github.

(In reply to Robert Oostenveld from comment #3) On you can see the suggested code changes. I will report once it is in the FieldTrip release version.

I have made a elaborate test script, that all seems to work. I have added it to the release version. If you get the latest version from or the daily release version from the FTP this evening after ~22h, you will have the support. I will send the test script in a separate mail.
