If you like these tools and if you think it is worth to make a donation for their development, you can do it here. Paypal is the method I currently support
Thank you very much!
tap3xml is a both directions XML<->TAP3 converter made in C++. It will convert the files according to the ASN.1 structure defined by the GSM Association. A Windows and a Linux compiled version is included (tap3xml.exe/tap3xml).
Unfortunately, because of lack of resources, I am not able to test tap3xml properly. If you like to contribute with the improvement of the tool, you can send your ideas/comments/bugs here.
nrt2xml (included in tap3xml's package)
nrt2xml is a both directions XML<->NRT (NRTRDE) converter made in C++. It will convert the files according to the ASN.1 structure defined by the GSM Association. A Windows and Linux compiled version is included (nrt2xml.exe/nrt2xml).
Unfortunately, because of lack of resources, I am not able to test nrt2xml properly. If you like to contribute with the improvement of the tool, you can send your ideas/comments/bugs here.
Readasn is a very simple but effective ASN1 viewer (before readtap) working as command line. Readasn let you view files with definite and indefinite length. It will also show the double null byte (\0\0) at the end of every indeifinte length, showing a complete overview and reflecting in hexadecimal exactly what is inside the file.
The Package includes also a compiled version for Windows (readasn.exe)
Indef2def will convert a file with indefinite length into a file with definite length. I have expierenced that some softwares have some problems with indefinite length files, so this tool will help to work around such problems.
Memory Pool (mp)
mp is a library that offers a set of functions for the administration of memory pools, in C language. The concept of memory pool promises an easier and a less fragmented handling of memory. The memory is allocated at the beginning of the program, or whenever needed in big chunks and freed just once at the end of the program, instead of multiple times for each allocation. The library offers analogue functions to malloc(), calloc(), realloc(), memalign(), strdup() and asprintf(), each of them taking a chunk of the current memory pool (or a specific one) instead of the memory directly from the heap. Among other functionalities the library offers the possibility of printing out the memory pools status and memory dump to a file. (Unfortunatelly no support yet to Miccrosoft Visual Studio)
For including these functionalities to your project just add the header file mp.h and the libmp.a static library. An example on how to use the functions can be found in the test.c file
