I am needing to export the data recorded in my spreadsheet frame-by-frame, however I am only interested in exporting the codes for each variable, NOT the onset/offset and ordinal info. I am new to ruby and was hoping for some guidance in coming up with a script that would accomplish both of these tasks.

Thank you!

Take a look at this export script example/template from the sample scripts repository:

It should replicate the export from the dropdown menu in Datavyu if you put all the columns you want to print in the sequential_columns parameter (and leave parameters static_columns and nested_columns blank: %w() ).

Thanks so much! I was able to get it to export the columns I wanted, however now it isn't exporting frame by frame. Any advice?

Oops, I forgot about the frame-by-frame requirement. I'll modify the example and put it up in the repository asap.

Sorry about the delay— see this script which should mimic the current Export By Frame functionality in Datavyu but give you more control over which columns/codes are exported:
