  Description     : a slow but precise neural network simulator supporting NeuroML

CNrun is a neuronal network model simulator, similar in purpose to NEURON
except that individual neurons are not compartmentalised.  It is extremely
precise and slow.  Neurons are modelled by Hodgkin-Huxley equations (conductance-
and rate-based); available synapses are those described in Rall (1967) and
Destexhe et al (1994).  All neuron and synapse parameters are per-unit configurable.

A 6-5-order Runge-Kutta integration method is used to compute state variables
with arbitrary time resolution.

CNrun can import/merge network topology from a NeuroML files, or create one
using a simple scripting language.

Simulation progress can be saved, per unit, to separate csv files for analysis;
for visualisation, state variables can be saved in native double format (for faster
plotting with gnuplot).
