Request : CLI program to binary dump canbus data to a file
  • 0
  • 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?
