slinktool, the all-in-one SeedLink client for data stream inspection, data collection and server testing.


slinktool connects to a SeedLink server and queries the server for information or requests data using uni-station or multi-station mode and prints information about the packets received. All received packets can optionally be dumped to a single file or saved in custom directory and file layouts.

Building and Installation

In most environments a simple make will compile the program.

Using GCC under Linux or Solaris, running make static will compile a static version if the appropriate libraries are present.

GCC can be explicitly used by running make gcc.


In order to compile under Solaris the src/Makefile needs to be edited. See the Makefile for instructions.

For further installation simply copy the resulting binary and man page (in the doc directory) to appropriate system directories.
