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. --broadcast 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.
