Testers For Linux Acars Decoder Needed

Wed Apr 02, 2003 5:12 am

Hi there

My first Alpha Release of a Linux ACARS Decoder is ready and work for me since more then 5 days stable.
I search testers for this software to improve the quality and to enhance the features.

Required: ncurses 5.x, OSS (Open Sound System) new (not the newest) release, place on disk, libc6 needed.

Features: Decode ACARS Messages, add Airline (if known), add Flight (if known) and add Aircraft (if known, based on reg).
A Tool to modify the database is also included in the first Version.

At the time the projectpage on freshmeat.net is not open, so please mail me acars@planespotting.net

Example of output:
----------------------------------------------------------[ 01/04/2003 21:00 ]-
ACARS Mode: M Aircraft Registration:.D-ALAC
Aircraft Type: Airbus A320-200
Message Label: Q0 Block ID: 1 Message Number: S48A
Flight Number: YP8248
Operator: Aero Lloyd
First contact with this aircraft

This is from the extended version. (Switch -e)

Greetings KjM
