Big Endian support. Unfortunately missing a test system...


This is a library to support the Measurement Data Format (MDF) standard from ASAM.

Normative References:

  • ASAM MDF v4.1.1

Build on Linux (e.g. Debian Testing)

Building under Linux works as usual:

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make install DESTDIR=..
make package

Build on Windows (e.g. Windows 7 64-Bit)

Building under Windows contains the following steps:

  • Use cmake-gui
  • Set "Where is the source code:" to the root directory.
  • Set "Where to build the binaries:" to folder "build" below the root directory.
  • Configure and Generate
  • Open the Visual Studio Solution (.sln) file in the build folder.
  • Compile it in Release Configuration.


Static tests are

  • Cppcheck (if OPTION_RUN_CPPCHECK is set)
  • CCCC (if OPTION_RUN_CCCC is set)

Dynamic tests are

  • Unit tests (if OPTION_RUN_TESTS is set)
  • Example runs (if OPTION_RUN_EXAMPLES is set)
  • Coverage (if OPTION_USE_LCOV_GCOV is set)

The test execution can be triggered using

make test


The package generation can be triggered using

make package

Wanted features

  • Features for a Patch version
  • More intensive tests with v4.0.0, v4.1.0. Possibly compiler switches to compile old versions. Use old examples.
  • Add a function File::setDefaultCompressionLevel(int compressionLevel = Z_DEFAULT_COMPRESSION).
  • Features for a Minor version
  • Higher level support for extensions, e.g. bus systems.
  • CC: Formular calculation functions for signal values.
  • AT: MD5 checksum support (OpenSSL, GnuTLS)
  • Finalization support
  • Features for a Major version
  • Every block should know its parents to update necessary information.
  • ASAM MDF 3.3.1 support. Might require information hiding.
  • XML support. Delivery of schemas. Need to clarify copyright restrictions first.
  • Reorder support. As documented in ASAM Wiki.
  • Use std:: types, such as uint8_t and std::chrono
