Parse Direct User Access Terminal mitigates information overload from aviation weather brief downloads. The USA Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Direct User Access Terminal (DUAT) standard, outlook, and abbreviated weather brief are broken into a hierarchy of files. Each file contains one METAR/NOTAM/PIREP/TAF/etc. Options allow input of HTML source or text, output of HTML or text, and a flat directory or multi-level directory. As separate files, NOTAMS/etc. scripts can quickly identify changed information, or prioritize for relevance. Parsing is lossless and the complete original text can be reconstructed using cpp(1).
