# translate a line from Python to R language

Dear forum,

after some failed attempts to create a functioning interface for using Python in R, I hope there is a simpler solution for my problem. I'm not exactly familiar with Python.

I need to apply a formula written in Python so that it works in R:

blinkreconstruct(series, vt=5, maxdur=500, margin=10, smooth_winlen=21, std_thr=3)

Can this formula be easily changed accordingly?

Hopefully my info is useful. I don't know how much work this would be, maybe someone can tell me.

Thank you very much!

Here is some more info on the formula:

It's from here.

It's meant to do a cubic interpolation for pupillometry data, a blink reconstruction.

`series`

refers to a column of pupil size data, apparently severy values per cell.

`vt`

is a pupil velocity treshold, thus will be defined by me.

`maxdur`

refers to a number of milliseconds, thus defined by me.

`margin`

refers to the margin to take around a blink.

`smooth_winlen`

and `std_thr`

I don't know.
