This is a basic example program that sets up a simple Bus Monitor. You are prompted for a filename (BMD file) and the the number of messages to capture. The program then captures those messages and writes them to the BMD file. Use BusTools/1553 (demo version or full version) to view the BMD file.
Since this is a monitor-only example, you need something else generating bus traffic producing messages to capture.
