For a live T table on your computer (Linux or Windows) you can install
This program is based on Owwl my Oww Library. Owwl provides a programmer's interface to the protocol used by Oww to transmit data through TCP or Unix sockets. Oww Client uses the protocol to receive weather data from one or more Oww servers.
Oww Client can connect to Oww servers running locally or on another machine connected over the net. The details of your servers may be added to a pop-up list for your convenience.
Units may be chosen by group (Metric, Imperial, &c) or individually (e.g. speeds in mph, but temperatures in °C).
Oww Client uses Gtk+ 2. The source may be compiled on systems supporting Gtk+ 2, and binary distributions are available for Linux and Windows. Owwl (in the distribution) could be of interest to other programmers who would like to interface to Oww.
Go to the
oww_client download page and select the
.tar.gz for Linux or the
.exe for Windows.
Note that you will need to have the Gtk+ runtime environment installed (version 2.6 or later). This is common on Linux. Windows installers are available from the Gimp for Windows project.
Start oww client and point it at your (Oww) server:
yourhost.yourdomainat the connect dialogue. You can click the "Add" button to save this for next time.
On Windows Oww Client now also acts as a Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) server.
Software that suuports DDE (such as LabView) may connect to Oww Client and request data. This has been developed mainly to support output from the QMC Instruments
Dewar controller, which sends cryogenic temperature data
The details are as follows:
yourhostin Oww Client and
yourhost.yourdomainin LabView, for instance.

I have an example VI, set to connect to
snap01 here: AdviseClient.vi.
