IRIG 106 Software and Utilities
Overview and News
The Irig106.org software library is a growing library of routines and utility programs for reading and manipulating IRIG 106 format data files. Software is written in portable C, and supports the following compiler environments:
- Microsoft Visual Studio
- GCC on Linux
- DJGPP on DOS
- Windows GUI Utility Programs
Qt based GUI Utility Programs
These utility programs are Windows programs based on the C/C++ IRIG 106 library and the Qt application and GUI library. There are two options for installing these programs.
First, there is a Windows installer executable. This installer is built using Inno Setup tool. Each installer creates a folder in the “\Program Files” directory. Then the executable, required libraries, and release notes files (if any) are copied to this directory. The installer also has the Microsoft Visual Studio C run time library installer. You can select whether or not to run the C run time library installer. There is no harm if you first try it without the MS C run time library installer but there is really no reason not to. There are also a few program settings are stored in the registry.
Second, for each program there are two zip file available for downloading. Zip files contain all the files necessary to run. Just unzip the zip file to an appropriate directory and double-click on the executable. Again, the Microsoft C run time library installer is available if necessary. A second, password protected zip file is also available. Sometimes this can make it easier to download through a firewall. The password is “irig106”.
| Qt-based GUI Utility Program / Version |
/ SHA-1 Checksum
| igDmpHeaders |
Ver 3.0 Released 2/2/2022
Password Protected Zip File
|A program for viewing and exporting Ch 10 data file headers. This is very useful for debugging recorder and data file problems.|
| igDisplayTMATS |
Ver 3.1 Released 5/5/2022
Password Protected Zip File
|A program for reading a displaying the TMATS setup record from a Ch 10 data file or stand-alone TMATS file. TMATS is displayed in raw form, summary form, and tree form. IRIG 106 Ch 9 signature is calculated. For TMATS with an embedded signature, the signature is checked.|
| ig106Dub |
Ver 3.0 Released 3/16/2022
Password Protected Zip File
|A program for dubbing Ch 10 data files, with selected time slices and selected channels.|
Windows Command Line Utility Programs
Utility programs are command line utilities. They can be compiled and run from a Windows console or from a Unix/Linux shell. Individual compiled versions built as Windows Console applications can be downloaded below. Or download the complete executables zip file.

irig106lib Ver 512 (7/16/2014) - A software library for reading, writing, and parsing IRIG 106 data files. Supported compiler environments include Microsoft Visual C 6, Visual Studio 2005, 2008, and 2010, as well as GCC on Linux and DJGPP. An experimental and incomplete Python wrapper is also included.
All source code is freely available for downloading.
11/28/2018 - The source has been moved from SourceForge to GitHub. The current version and complete change history is available there. The SourceForge project is still at SourceForge area. This source is deprecated and shouldn't be used in the future.
This software project is looking for more team members! Contact Bob Baggerman (info below) if you would like to participate in this effort. Future plans (in no particular order) are:
- Integration with VLC for video playback
- Additional language support including:
- Python language binding
- QT based utilities
- General purpose lab/ground recorder application
C# language wrapper and a Java implementation have been abandon for now.
