I am wondering if there is any existing c++ api I can use to read a bag file without using any ROS package. I am writing a navigation algorithm for my robot and currently the algorithm does not use ROS at all. However, all my test data are in ros bag format. I would like to read the data from the bag file and debug my standalone program in Visual Studio.

Anyone knows?

you can use this command to convert bag file to text data and then use this in visual studio:

rostopic echo -b file.bag -p /topic > data.txt

but text file is very large and reading is very slow
