Fast FIX Parser (FFP) is a library for parsing Financial Information eXchange (FIX) messages. It takes input bytes as they arrive from, for example, a socket, and converts them into a representation of FIX messages which can be further analysed for semantic checks, converted into “business” structures, etc. It also provides a way to specify which tags are allowed for a particular message and verifies this specification at runtime.

The FIX message viewer is a set of Ruby scripts that parse FIX (Financial Information eXchange protocol) messages to display them in a more human-readable format. The viewer can only parse FIX messages in a file or from STDIN. It also expects a full FIX message on each line. The FIX message can be prepended with a timestamp, but this will be ignored. The output is colored to make it easier to read, and the MsgType field is highlighted. The log viewer works on the command line only, and requires that Ruby is installed.
