This program has been tested only on Linux kernel 4.14.55-lts with Qt v5.11.1. Please let me know if it works on other operating systems/configurations.

## Requirements ##
  * Qt5, Qt5base-devel (Lower versions are untested)
  * CC compiler (gcc, clang, etc)
  * [Fossil](https://fossil-scm.org) (if cloning repo)

### Compile ###
Download tarball from files tab above, or






Clone this repo:<br />
<code><pre>$ fossil clone https://chiselapp.com/user/tion/repository/nmspd nmspd.fossil
$ fossil open nmspd.fossil</pre></code>



Build it:<br />
<code><pre>$ qmake -o Makefile nmspd.pro
$ make</pre></code>

Run it:<br />
<code><pre>$ ./nmspd
$ ./nmspd -style "Windows"</pre></code>

## Usage ##
![nmspd screen](https://chiselapp.com/user/tion/repository/nmspd/raw/db870102a540d151bd6101ab83a4a99575aa7570?m=image/jpeg)

Enter the coordinates. This can be obtained by building a signal booster in-game on any planet/moon. Look for the alphanumeric sequence in the lower left corner of the form: XXXX:12AB:34CD:EF56:7890. The actual values will differ. Only the last 16 digits are important and are what you enter into the program. So in this example, the coordinates you enter would be 12AB:34CD:EF56:7890, ignoring the XXXX that preceeds it.

Optionally select a portal number. If you are unsure what this should be, then leave it at 1.

Click 'convert to glyph' to obtain a glyph code and appropriate portal glyphs.

Alternatively, enter a glyph code and click 'convert to coordinates'. Glyph codes are 12-digit hexadecimal values.

## Credits ##
I am not and will never be smart enough to decode star system coordinates and portal sequences 
on my own. What others have discovered and shared I have merely adapted to C++.

### Download and Compile ###
Download the tarball from:<br />

  * [download page](/download)
  * current check-in page within the 'Timeline' tab above

or

Clone this repo:<br />
<code><pre>$ fossil clone https://chiselapp.com/user/tion/repository/nmspd nmspd.fossil
$ fossil open nmspd.fossil</pre></code>

Now that you have the source code...<br />

Build it:<br />
<code><pre>$ qmake -o Makefile nmspd.pro
$ make</pre></code>

Run it:<br />
<code><pre>$ ./nmspd
$ ./nmspd -style "Windows"</pre></code>
