Simple Neurite Tracer =
== File Format == The .traces files that are saved by Simple Neurite Tracer are gzip compressed XML. The plugin will also load uncompressed XML files, but by default they are saved in the compressed form.
The XML DTD is included in the DOCTYPE of each file. The root element is always <tracings>, and this can contain the following elements:
* <tt>distance</tt><nowiki>: This is the minimum "distance" so far found for any route moving from any point on the original paths to this node. (The complete route can be reconstructed by following </nowiki><tt>previousid</tt>s.)
* <tt>status</tt><nowiki>: this attribute can either have the value </nowiki><tt>open</tt> or <tt>closed</tt>, which have their conventional meanings in A* search.
