NAME

Aviation::Report - Perl extension for translating U.S. METAR, TAF and PIREP textual reports into plain English.

SYNOPSIS

  use strict;
  use Aviation::Report;

  print decode_METAR_TAF(report, style);
  print decode_PIREP(report, style);

DESCRIPTION

Translates U.S. METAR, TAF and PIREP text reports into plain English. Although the syntax of these reports is standardized, it is not as obvious as it first appears to make correct translations.

The style option controls the final appearance. A style of 0 emits only plain English, while 1 includes the original tokens for reference purposes.
