CRaTER -- rtlm

NAME

rtlm -- Receives CCSDS telemetry packets on UDP port and prints contents on STDOUT.

USAGE

    w_monitor [-f datafile] [-h] [-r htmlform] [-s webout] [-v]

FLAGS

flag -f takes ASCII data from filename (NB \``-\'' refers to STDIN) -h prints this help message -r reads this file to get master HRML form [master.html] -s writes this HTML file to web site [output.html] -v verbose operation

DESCRIPTION

The program receives rtlm ASCII data processed by calcurve and generates a web page. To do this it takes a master HTML form which has embedded in it names of the form _tag_, where ``tag'' is a data name defined by rtlm. The data values retrieved by this program are formatted for display and replace the original name. The master HTML form is only read once upon program start.

By default data is taken from STDIN. The ouput is written only upon receipt of a housekeeping packet (AppId 122), which is once every 16 seconds in the normal LRO configuration. The web page itself has an embedded refresh command set to 8 seconds.

If -f flag is used, packets are read once per second. This will be useful for reading archived data files.

BUGS

It's early.
