libhomeradar is an easy to use library for all type of programming language which can use libraries. libhomeradar can connect to different sources to collect aircraft informations arround the world with extended informations, powerful filtering and structured data access.
libhomeradar is written in C and is available for Linux and Windows (2003, XP, NT, Vista).
Currently libhomeradar works with the Kinetic Avionics SBS-1 base station and the Airnav Systems Radarbox.
Since libhomeradar 1.002 you can also use a standard translation table to replace aircraft registrations, change airlines or make human readable flightnumbers from callsign flightnumbers (if the correct flightnumber is known)
There is a single function call to enable or disable the translation functions of libhomeradar.
/* This function loads the translation table and activate the translation option If on = true, the translation function will be enabled on = false, will disable the translation function path should be a pointer to the translation.csv file. You need this only on the first call to this function or if you wish to change the file. This function returns TRUE on success or FALSE on error */ extern int homeradar_translate(LHR handle, const int on, const char *path);
The translation will be done before any lookups are made on the contact record.
See the following section 'Translation file syntax' for a short description of the translation file.
