Hi folks. I'm toying around with my (limited) Perl skills and want to
write a script to handle GPS data. Not really on topic but I figure the
skillset will be on here, if anywhere.
I just bought a smartphone that can talk to my Bluetooth GPS. I've
found a piece of software that will hit an arbitrary web location
passing in the current location. I want to take that and log it.
Now I'm not going to write something stateful so I can't write valid
GPX. I want simple, quick, dirty. So can anyone recommend a data format
the gpsbabel can read that will take something as simple as one record
per line of something like:
<Lat> <Long> <Date> <Time>
