       MIDGsmooth - send MIDG-formatted GPS data to a FlightGear instance


       MIDGsmooth --help
           | --infile infile_name [options]...
           | --serial dev_name --outfile outfile_name [options]...


       MIDGsmooth  is  a  utility  that reads GPS data in MIDG format from a text file or from an
       MIDG device connected to the serial port, parses it and sends it to a FlightGear  instance
       for replaying.


       --help Display usage information and exit.

       --infile infile_name
              Read GPS data from infile_name.

       --serial dev_name
              Read GPS data from the serial device named dev_name.

       --outfile outfile_name
              Save the data retrieved from the device to outfile_name.

       --hertz frequency
              Specify  the  frequency  to  use  for  sending data to the FlightGear instance.  By
              default, events are sent at a frequency of 60 Hz.

       --host hostname
              Send the data to the FlightGear instance running on hostname.

              If --host is not specified, the default is to send the data to localhost.

       --skip-seconds seconds
              Do not transmit the first seconds seconds of data.

              This option is ignored when reading GPS data from a serial device.

              Send flight data model and control data as broadcast packets.

       --fdm-port port
              Set the port flight data model data should be sent to. By default, data is sent  to
              port 5505.

       --ctrls-port port
              Set the port control data should be sent to. By default, data is sent to port 5506.

       --altitude-offset meters
              Add the specified offset (in meters) to the altitude sent to FlightGear.


       MIDGsmooth exits with 0 on success, with -1 if the syntax of the command-line arguments is
       wrong or an error occurs.
