[Eeglablist] code for converting EEGLAB to fieldtrip data formats (and vice versa)

Dear Wambua,

there is the "eeglab2fieldtrip" structure to convert EEGLAB to FieldTrip (in EEGLAB code). Also we contributed files to the FILE-IO project of Fieldtrip to import EEGLAB datasets into Fieldtrip and any other project using FILE-IO. These functions also convert the EEGLAB event structure to the Fiedltrip event format.

There is no know sets of function to convert Fieldtrip back to EEGLAB although I had heard rumors a couple of years ago.

Best,

Arno
