C API Reference

This section of the Acroname BrainStem Reference covers the lower level C programming interface. This reference assumes that you understand the BrainStem system. If you would like to get started using BrainStem, please see the following sections of the Reference documentation.

Most users will want to begin with the C++ API or Python libraries, but for some specialized applications, or applications that must be ANSI C only, the C API provides access a little closer to the metal than the other APIs. To use the C api effectivley you will need to understand a little more about the BrainStem protocol, and particularly about UEI’s and their significance.
