xtide.el is an Emacs interface to the XTide program. M-x xtide displays a graph in a buffer, and other XTide output styles can be selected. There's a tie-in to M-x calendar adding a T key to bring up the tides for the selected day, like S for sunrise and M for phase of the moon do.

The XTide GUI of course does all this and more, so if you like that there's no reason to switch. But on a TTY where the GUI can't run or if you just want to stay in Emacs then xtide.el is a nice way to browse tide times.

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

Download version 24 here, either just the .el, or a Debian package out of my repo, or the source for the package.

xtide.el (68k, and sig)
xtide-el_24-0.1_all.deb (24k, and sig)
xtide-el-24.tar.gz (51k, and sig)

The sig files are Gnu PG ascii armoured signatures for each, generated from my key.

See tcd-format.el for nosing around in XTide's .tcd files. The location selector in xtide.el is one of the view type modes where scroll-1.el is good too.

xtide.el has an EmacsWiki page.
