Title: RatImage - research Assistance Toolbox for Computer-Aided Human Behavior Experiments
Abstract: This paper reports on RatImage, a toolbox specifically developed to simplify the programming of software used in computerized human behavior experiments. RatImage contains Borland Turbo Pascal constans, variables, functions, and procedures which, when used, relieve programmers of many tedious and complex tasks, like graphical output, keyboard handling, mouse control, file access, and network communication. The structure of the toolbox, its relationship to other programming methods, and its significance for computerized human behavior experiments are discussed. All provided pre-defined elements and routines are listed and described.
