tcd-format.el sets up decoding of XTide .tcd compiled tide database files as plain text for viewing in Emacs. It uses the Emacs buffer-file-format mechanism and the XTide restore_tide_db program from tcd-utils.

tcd-format.el is only designed to look at .tcd files (as found under /usr/share/xtide normally) when you don't have their source handy. If you want to edit you probably should use the tideEditor program.

tcd-format.el is free software (free as in freedom), published under the terms of the GNU General Public License (v3 or up).

Download version 7 here, either just the .el, or the full source, or a Debian package here or from my repo.

tcd-format.el (10k, and sig)
tcd-format-7.tar.gz (23k, and sig)
tcd-format_7-1_all.deb (7k, and sig)

The full source only adds the Debian packaging bits, and the deb in fact is really just a handy way to get the install setups and depend on tcd-utils. Each sig is a Gnu PG ascii armoured signature for the respective files, generated from my key.

For Emacs 21 see my xml-coding.el to recognise the charset in the decoded xml part (Emacs 22 does that already).

And see xtide.el for running xtide to view tide times within Emacs.
