 +  <a href=/​reference/​ft_realtime_ctfproxy><​font color=green>​FT_REALTIME_CTFPROXY</​font></​a>​ provides a  real-time interface to the MEG data stream.
 +  This application requires Acq to stream the data to shared memory, and ctf2ft_v1
 +  (formerly known as AcqBuffer) to be maintaining the shared memory and to prevent
 +  overruns. This MATLAB function will subsequently copy the data from shared
 +  memory to a FieldTrip buffer.
 + 
 +  The FieldTrip buffer is a network transparent server that allows the acquisition
 +  client to stream data to it. An analysis client can connect to read the data upon
 +  request. Multiple clients can connect simultaneously,​ each analyzing a specific
 +  aspect of the data concurrently.
 + 
 +  Since the CTF shared memory interface is only available on the acquisition machine
 +  itself, this function must run on the acquisition machine. The buffer to which the
 +  data is streamed is available through the network, so the actual analysis can be
 +  done elsewhere.
 + 
 +  Use as
 +    ft_realtime_ctfproxy(cfg)
 + 
 +  The target to write the data to is configured as
 +    cfg.target.datafile ​     = string, target destination for the data (default = '​buffer://​localhost:​1972'​)
 +    cfg.target.dataformat ​   = string, default is determined automatic
 + 
 +  To stop this realtime function, you have to press Ctrl-C
