The specified txtfile will be analysed to find out the sampling rate
(i.e. frame rate) of the samples, as well as the contents of the columns
of data. Angle data will be expanded to two columns, to get both inside and
outside angles (360 - x), and both will be converted. Column headings will
be parsed and extended with alternate unit specifiers so the correct units
appear in the output in the analysis program.
The txtfile must have at least 3 columns, with the first column containing
the Index field (ignored), and the second one containing the Time field,
used to calculate the sampling rate. The remaining columns can be X, Y and
Angle fields in any order, and will be converted to waveforms in the runfile.
