First, I hope I wish the best to everybody during those harsh times !

This is a follow up to a quite old thread and a specific request about 
releasing teqc code as open-source....

Could you be more explicit about which section of code can/cannot be 
released ?
I believe on section is about the rt27 / trimble decoding. If you have 
good contacts at Trimble Inc. I think the whole community would really 
appreciate if those retrictions could be removed and the source code 
released. Are there any other specific parts ?

 From a personnal point of view, I think that it really make no sens at 
all to protect the raw binary format out of the receiver. Most of the 
manufacturers do provide a full open documentation of their file formats 
and this do not prevent them to sell products.

The background of this new request is indeed in the frame of rt27 to 
rinex data conversion where i'm experiencing differences with the tools 
chain from rt27 to rinex with teqc and with Trimble convertToRinex 
proprietaty tool. The differences are about the Glonass L1 observables 
and I believe this is about ICB not being taken into account by teqc.

Best regards,
