The mosquitoget program
mosquitoget - Read dive profiles from a suunto mosquito dive computer.
mosquitoget reads dive profiles and / or configuration memory from suunto
mosquito dive computers. In the default operation mode mosquitoget saves
each dive profile into one file, stopping when it discovers that a file
(dive profile) already exists.
The dive profile files may be changed using text editors, for example to
Print all profiles to stdout.
In this mode mosquitoget will not stop until all profiles have been read.
Get all profiles.
mosquitoget will not stop when it detects what a dive profile already exists in the target directory, but will skip this profile.
Bottle volume in liter.
This really is the volume, not the result of the multiplucation of pressure and volume. In other words: 'volume' is the amount of water you could fill in, not the volume the air had outside of the cylinder.
Include NAME[S] into dive information.
By default the buddy information will be empty
Don't read profiles, print configuration to stdout.
Include COMMENT into dive information.
By default there will be not comment. Only the last comment given on the command line is honored. Edit the dive profile file to include additional comments.
Talk to the device computer attached to DEVICE.
The default device name is /dev/ttyS0.
Save profiles to DIR.
The default is to save to the current directory.
Bottle pressure at end of dive.
Append the unit to the number as in '750psi', though you would not need to append 'bar', which is the default unit. This will only be used for the latest dive read.
Note that this option will be ignored if the dive profile contains information about the pressure.
Include EQUIPMENT into dive information.
By default the equipment information will be empty.
Read NN bytes of memory starting at position XX.
Both values are to be given in decimal numbers. The output will be sent to the standard output.
Get profiles (this is the default operation).
The program will create one file for each dive. By default this file will contain the configuration memory of the computer. Use the --without-config option to turn this off.
The program stops when it detects another file with the same name, unless the --all option is used, in which case it not overwrite older files, but skip that dive.
Use the --dir option to save files into another directory.
Include PLACE into dive information.
By default the place information will be empty.
Bottle pressure at start of dive.
This is very much like --end-pressure.
Where to find related information.
Show known units.
Show version: mosquitoget (mosquitotools) 0.1.2.
Show a list of options or the long help on one.
The use with an argument shows the long help text
of that option, without an argument it will list
Show longer help texts for all or one option.
Read the latest dive profiles through /dev/ttyS9:
mosquitoget --device /dev/ttyS9
Get all profiles not already found in /tmp:
mosquitoget --device=/dev/XXXX --dir /tmp --all
Show the first 128 bytes of memory:
mosquitoget --device=/dev/XXXX --get-mem 0:128
Get new profiles setting cylinder information:
mosquitoget --device=/dev/XXXX --bottle-volume=10liter \\
One could leave out the units in this case, since liter and bar are the
Pressure may be given as 1.23unit, with unit being one of:
bar (default), mbar, hpa, kpa, atm, psi.
Volumes may be given as 1.23unit, with unit being one of:
liter (default), cuft.
Lengths may be given as 1.23unit, with unit being one of:
m or meter (default), cm, mm, f or foot, yard.
mosquitoget has not been tested against an original suunto interface, and has
not been tested against other suunto dive computers. A few of them may work.
This software is still in an early testing stage and may contain serious flaws.
Do not bet your life on it!
