Plane Plotter Report
Plane Plotter Report with text output
This is a toolkit of programs and a command script to produce and e-mail daily mode-S logs from Plane Plotter automatically. The default single-date/time format is acceptable to Alexis's Robot for log checking hex => registration purposes.
You need to make Plane Plotter create daily reports in SQLite format.
These reports will appear in the designated Plane Plotter Log Files directory, and will have file names such as: pp_report20140612.sqb
As this is free software, support is via a self-help group:

But I want to make reports for days other than "yesterday"
In the script, the command GetYesterday can take a parameter specifying the number of days offset from today, which by default is -1, giving "today-1" i.e. yesterday, so making the line:
for /f "tokens=*" %%i in ('GetYesterday -2') do set YESTERDAY=%%i00
would look for a report for the day before yesterday and so on. Note the space between the GetYesterday and the -2. You could try +0 for today's report (untested). Alternatively, putting:
after the GetYesterday line would force a fixed date of 20130722 (don't forget to add the "00" to match the report .sqb name).
I do suggest turning off the mailing part of the script before you try this!

You may need to make the change for the new log naming convention when using the above, as it hasn't been updated by the author. If you like to update your own copy by hand, it's a simple edit to change:
for /f "tokens=*" %%i in ('GetYesterday') do set YESTERDAY=%%i
for /f "tokens=*" %%i in ('GetYesterday') do set YESTERDAY=%%i00
at or around line 40. I.e. add "00" (two zero characters) after the "%%i".
