I've developed a simple unpacker and some command-line tools to dump and error-check the data from the VME system or the new MicroTCA system (data formats are a bit different). The original version was developed as a CMSSW job "EricDIM" TWiki page.

To get the tools from our svn and build them:

  $ svn co svn://cms1.bu.edu/Eric
  $ cd Eric/RawAnalysis
  $ make
  $ ./dump_DTC.exe
  usage:  dump_DTC.exe [options] file_name
    -e (check for sequential EvN)
    -h (check for uHTR EvN)
    -v (verbose)
       1=DTC header 2=uHTR headers  3=uHTR payload

If you run e.g. ./dump_DTC.exe -h dump1.dat it will check the file dump1.dat for EvN, BcN and OrN errors. The data format is documented here. ("HCAL Upgrade Data Format", latest version).
