Functions for reading info databases of Zeiss LSM confocal microscope files.

timestampsread(fid, lsminf)
function lsminf = timestampsread(fid, lsminf)
%TIMESTAMPSREAD Read in actual timestamps from Zeiss LSM file format, do some
%basic calculations
%   LSMINF = TIMESTAMPSREAD(FID, LSMINF)
%
%   FID is the fopen file identifier to read data from.  LSMINF is the
%   previously read LSM headers up to this point, including file offset
%   location for the timestamps.
