TITLE block in NMODL file

Post by neuromau »

Is it possible to programmatically access (read-only) the TITLE block (or COMMENTS block) of a compiled NMODL file via hoc?

The TITLE line is saved in a
static char* modelname;
in the mod file. So it is only available from within a VERBATIM block in that mod file.
Of course that makes it more or less trivially useless since you could do your own identification code in a VERBATIM block

Okay, thanks! In that case I may just use a system call to grep for now to avoid recompiling.
