A Perl module for accessing aviation weather information.
Geo::METAR is Perl module for accessing aviation weather information. I am developing it for my own use, but I realize that others' needs may be served by making this available for public use. I was even able to put it to use in my [old] day job. (By "aviation weather" I'm referring to things like a cloud altitudes, temperature, wind, dew point, and so on.)
The code is distributed under the GNU Public License. If you don't like that, don't use it.
Version 1.14 was released on November 24th, 2000. It contains a lot of new features (not all of which are documented yet) and fixes for several bugs.
My directory on CPAN is http://www.perl.com/CPAN-local/authors/id/J/JZ/JZAWODNY/ and you can find most of my stuff there as well.
If you're interested, I could use help with both the coding, testing, and documentation of extensions to this module.
If you'd like to help, feel free to mail me.
