np is a terminal based NMEA parser written in Perl.
np provides quick and flexible access to GPS data from various sources. Currently data can be read from devices, text files, STDIN or GPSD (raw mode).
The list of supported sentences includes $GPRMC, $GPGGA, $GPGSA, $GPGSV and Garmin's proprietary $PGRME.
By employing user-definable stylesheets, the parser output can be adapted to numerous application scenarios.
np has been successfully tested on various flavours of Unix, as well as on Win32 Systems. However, since Microsoft does not support POSIX device files, data can only be read from text files, gpsd or STDIN on Win32 systems.
What's New in This Release:
· This release supports a significantly enhanced range of GPS receivers.
· The HTML interface was partly rewritten.
· New command line options for improved flexibility in the handling of NMEA data have been added to the parser.
