Download and Installation¶
BacStalk is written in Matlab 2017b.
There are two versions of BacStalk available.
- If you don’t have Matlab, you can use a standalone pre-compiled version which requires Matlab runtime R2017b. This version lacks the Matlab figure editor to modify figures created with BacStalk.
- If you have Matlab (later version than 2014b) available, we recommend you downloading the source code and simply running the included file BacStalk.m.
