acarsd Operation overview

All transmissions with the correct ACARS header *<SYN><SYN><SOH> are printed to screen and/or GUI.

acarsd provides all information on-screen. A correction of the data is not done. acarsd is a Real Time Decoder
Messages decoded correctly without parity errors are displayed in grey. acarsd will also check the message control block checksum. If this check is enabled, you can be sure to see only real ACARS messages on your screen. Messages containing text errors are shown in white while the actual text will not be displayed.
Messages containing other errors will be displayed in binary (red) while the error message will be shown in cyan.
