Packet Header Parser (Default)

From GNU Radio
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Post header metadata as a PMT. In a sense, this is the inverse block to packet_headergenerator_bb. The difference is, the parsed header is not output as a stream, but as a PMT dictionary, which is published to message port with the id "header_data". The dictionary consists of the tags created by the header formatter object. You should be able to use the exact same formatter object as used on the Tx side in the packet_headergenerator_bb. If only a header length is given, this block uses the default header format.


Header Length
Number of bytes per header
Length Tag Name
Length Tag Key

Example Flowgraph[edit]

Insert description of flowgraph here, then show a screenshot of the flowgraph and the output if there is an interesting GUI. Currently we have no standard method of uploading the actual flowgraph to the wiki or git repo, unfortunately. The plan is to have an example flowgraph showing how the block might be used, for every block, and the flowgraphs will live in the git repo.
