i am unable to the epoch file saved as .csv


Updated the detection of multiple static periods in within the 1 second epoch.

Update to the decision about activPAL and activPAL3 detection

*Added processing functionality of the timestamp for activPAL3
*Minor bug fix for how sedentary activity segments are calculated. When there is no corresponding value in Column 7 and 8 and visa versa.

Added a user manual and also a requirement to view the disclaimer before using the software.

User interface appearance update.

.p file removed and replaced with .m file
