The Dendro1 executable v. 1: Dendro1.exe
Syntax: Dendro1 <input file with extension> <output file name prefix (no extension, .swc is used)> <optional distance between branches, default is 10um>
The program will create a separate swc file for each tree on the cell. They will be named using the prefix given, a letter designating the type (3 for basal, 4 for apical), and the number of the tree as encountered in the swc file. For example the following command line would result in the creation of the following files (assuming one apical and three basal trees).
