Loading databases into libhomeradar

At the moment libhomeradar use simple textfiles as databases which will be loaded and indexed as binary tree within memory.

You can load the databases automaticaly during the libhomeradar_init() call or you can use the libhomeradar_load_databases(LHR H, const char *path) function to load the databases into memory.
This functions needs 2 parameter. The first is the LHR handle to the library and the second is the path where your database files are located. The database files have fixed names:

	aircrafts.txt		Aircraft database
	airlines.txt		Airline database
	airports.txt		Airports database
	flights.txt		Flight database
	icao24.txt		Aircraft identification database

The icao24.txt database is very important. If there is no icao24 database, libhomeradar cannot resolve aircraft registrations and of cause also not the aircraft types and details.
You can download updated databases from our download section.
