Yes it is a NMEA gps output

i'm tring to red it directly from a seria device,

reformat it in a rght format readable by proj
can i trasnfor it from :

4051.1749  N   01415.5317   E


40 51 17.49 N  014 15 53.17

that isn't the same of:

40.511749  N   014.155317   E

(sorry for this basilar question!)

have you any suggestion/comment to
read directly the NMEA format in proj !

i'm playing with awk or other bash command to reformat this...
but i'm a newbie student...:-)
...  have you any suggestion about ?
