Introduction

Presently, the simulation specification is the easiest method of producing a simple simulation. Each process in the simulation is defined by a single line. It is also possible to use loops. Different simulations, describing different models, can be run using the same main driving program. For example, a program for calculating frequency threshold tuning curves-see the "Tests/SSPrograms/TuningCurve.c" test program-can be used for any model, simply by changing the simulation specification. It doesn't matter whether it is the Carney ([3.]) or the Meddis and Hewitt ([13.]) auditory nerve models, a linear or non-linear basilar membrane model, and so on. This allows a great deal of flexibility, and the opportunity to re-use code.
