np is a compact NMEA parser. It provides quick and flexible access to GPS data from various sources. Data can be read from devices, text files, STDIN, or GPSD (raw mode). The list of supported NMEA sentences includes $GPRMC, $GPGGA, $GPGSA, $GPGSV, as well as Garmin's proprietary $PGRME and $PGRMM. By employing user-definable stylesheets, the parser output can be adapted to numerous application scenarios. The parser can be queried directly from the console or through the included Web front end.
