Using a packet sniffer I am able to detect and successfully read a "hello word" payload within an 802.15.4 frame.

It's great can see the frames in the sniffer, but now I'm at the point where I would like to parse the payload out and do useful things with it.

I was wondering if the community could point me to sample C/C++/Java (or even labview, doesn't matter) code that uses hardware (like an xbee) and can successfully parse out the payload in order to do useful operations.

Is is possible to use the packet sniffer I already have for this purpose?

I would greatly appreciate all / any advise.

"hello wor_d" sounds like there's a character missing LOL. It's all about accuracy and a long day!! – Andy aka Aug 24 '13 at 0:02
