IRIG 106 Software and Utilities

Overview and News

The software library is a growing library of routines and utility programs for reading and manipulating IRIG 106 format data files. Software is written in portable C, and supports the following compiler environments:

  • Microsoft Visual Studio
  • GCC on Linux
  • DJGPP on DOS
  • Windows GUI Utility Programs

Qt based GUI Utility Programs

These utility programs are Windows programs based on the C/C++ IRIG 106 library and the Qt application and GUI library. There are two options for installing these programs.

First, there is a Windows installer executable. This installer is built using Inno Setup tool. Each installer creates a folder in the “\Program Files” directory. Then the executable, required libraries, and release notes files (if any) are copied to this directory. The installer also has the Microsoft Visual Studio C run time library installer. You can select whether or not to run the C run time library installer. There is no harm if you first try it without the MS C run time library installer but there is really no reason not to. There are also a few program settings are stored in the registry.

Second, for each program there are two zip file available for downloading. Zip files contain all the files necessary to run. Just unzip the zip file to an appropriate directory and double-click on the executable. Again, the Microsoft C run time library installer is available if necessary. A second, password protected zip file is also available. Sometimes this can make it easier to download through a firewall. The password is “irig106”.

Besides the various software utilities, there is a software library for reading, writing, and parsing IRIG 106 data files. Supported compiler environments include Microsoft Visual Studio as well as GCC on Linux and DJGPP. An experimental and incomplete Python wrapper is also included. Latest source for this library is available on github (see below).

Source Code

All source code is freely available for downloading.

Release versions of the IRIG 106 Library and the IRIG 106 utilities are available from the GitHub Repository area.

11/28/2018 - The source has been moved from SourceForge to GitHub. The current version and complete change history is available there. The SourceForge project is still at SourceForge area. This source is deprecated and shouldn't be used in the future.

Future Plans

This software project is looking for more team members! Contact Bob Baggerman (info below) if you would like to participate in this effort. Future plans (in no particular order) are:

  • Integration with VLC for video playback
  • Additional language support including:
    • Python language binding
  • QT based utilities
  • General purpose lab/ground recorder application

C# language wrapper and a Java implementation have been abandon for now.
