I know of at least one:


Which can be invoked so as to output received metadata synchronously on STDOUT in a well-defined format. The intended use cases are things like event cueing such as is used in classic radio broadcast applications. The metadata is derived from the actual received bitstream —i.e. no mucking about with polling the administrative interface — so good timing accuracy can be maintained.
