Stand alone Encoder/Decoder

Post by Mcastil7 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 4:57 pm

I would like to be able to encode/decode programs even when I'm not connected to the internet. Where can I get the program that I can run on my machine (Linux/Mac)—preferably, the source code?

Thanks,

Mauricio

What does that mean?

Could that really happen somehow?

Most airplanes do not have GOGO wifi yet. 15 hours to Sydney without encode/decode would be like a smoker doing the flight without nicorette gum :lol:

I refrained from suggesting Geoff how to use those 15 hours, and you... ;)

Beware!

These 15 hours have to be dedicated entirely for his employer. If he used this time to work on his [hidden word], which would be a commercial activity, he could be fired immediately. What a pity having just (almost?) attained the status of a Captain!

OTOH playing around all day in the cockpit, except for 15 minutes during departure and 20 minutes for the arrival procedures - that's of paramount importance for the cockpit crew to keep them alive, and awake for long 15 hours.

Consequently, never ever again ask Geoff to work on the [hidden word] while on the flight deck. You'd risk the future of this young man.

Massimo!

I didn't talk of Geoff at all. :shock: I meant an (alas, so far hypothetical) user of this book (to be published yet).

I’d suggest that’s not a good topic to explore. Let’s stick to the DM42.

Is he paid for this fun? If so, it's more like work (the kind of work I'd come out of retirement for!)

Apologies for not being clear. I’m talking about the raw file encoder/decoder service offered by Swiss Micros here:

https://www.swissmicros.com/dm42/decoder/

I’m looking for a standalone program that does the same thing without having to access that web address.

Thanks
