In this post I will describe, shortly, how to use InLine scripts in E-prime to save your data in comma-separated values (CSV) files. For those who are not familiar with E-prime it is an experiment generating software based on visual basic (i.e., it has its own scripting language called e-basic). Its main purpose is to make building experiment easy/easier. It offers a drag-and-drop graphical user interface (GUI) which is fairly easy to use (although I prefer OpenSesame and PsychoPy – which both offers drag-and-drop GUIs). See the Wikipedia article if you want to know more about e-prime.
This guide will assume that you have worked with e-prime before. That is, you should already have a, more or less, ready experiment that you can add the scripts to. In the guide I use a Simon task created in e-prime as an example.
