Request : CLI program to binary dump canbus data to a file

How hard is it to write a program that will "enable" one or more of the can bus'es and makes a binary dump to a file ?

I think I run into problems with the fact that my laptop is not fast enough for all the graphical overhead of the app & wireshark.
I am pretty sure a CLI would have so little overhead that my old hardware would be fast enough.

Would somebody take a try at this ?

If you are on windows and have .net framework installed you can try this console application written in C#:
I've created it using my <a href="">windows dll</a>. It's built on .net framework v 4.5.2

Syntax is:
<code>CBTConsole.exe [COM port name] [bus] [output file]</code>

I wonder if you could use Mono to run on Linux?

I just ordered a mini lcd screen, a mini usb keyboard for one of my raspberry pi units.
Will try to make a little computer to capture stuff while driving.
Will be using python. If I have something to show, will post it here
