METAR Decoder Software Package Library: Parses Aviation Routine Weather Reports
This is a Fantastic library!! I wanted to develop a Windows-based application which could decode METAR messages, but after a week of studying the protocols, I came to realize that I was never going to understand everything that I needed to, to decode all the options. And then, I discovered this library. It is trivial to use, *very* thorough in its functionality, and actually builds under gcc without having to spend days figuring out obscure compiler issues. My Windows application, which is literally a WinAPI wrapper around this library, is available in both executable and source-code form, here: derelllicht dot com slash Metar dot html This library, and my derivation, are both released under the famous "no, really, it's free !! Do what you want with it!!" license.
