PREtty FIX

A commandline based pretty printer for FIX messages.

Based on a FIX4.4 dictionary, but is usable with most versions.

Usage

Mainly developed with unix piping in mind:

echo 8=4.4^1=test | prefix

But can also provide a message as an argument:

prefix 8=4.4^1=test

outputs:

BeginString = 4.4
Account = test

Currently can use ^ and | and SOH as delimiters.

Use prefix --help or man prefix for more details.

Piping

Unix piping greatly increases the potential uses. For example: Parsing a log file and aligning the values for easy scan reading.

# Creates the example log file.
echo "8=FIX.4.4|1=TEST^55=EUR/USD|150=1" > example.log
# Pipes the contents to prefix which parses and pipes them to awk, which prints them aligned.
cat example.log | prefix -v | awk '{printf("%-20s %-30s\n", $1,$3)}'

outputs:

BeginString          FIX.4.4
Account              TEST
Symbol               EUR/USD
ExecType             PartialFill

Installation

Can be installed using:

cargo install prefix
