Non IRDA infrared on Linux! Image of a Remote Controller

An year and a half afterwards... I've improve the scenery by moving out of Source Forge into Svannah. This was done primarily because VA decided to endeavor in muddy waters, creating a swamp that clouds the relevance of Software Libre.

After the rant, let's move on to the code.

First targets:
  1. become a gnu project (it's not yet -- shame shame shame)
  2. evolve to a true plugin system (instead of compile time ir support)

irmctl now has builtin support for xmms (enabled by default, check Makefile in src dir). So go check it out.

Well, my first attpempt at numbers greater than 9!!! :) The idea is: you define a ten multiplier button. each time you press it, you increase a counter by ten, until you press a number button (usually from 0 to 9). By then, you get a number. For instance, if you press the TEN button twice and then press 5, you get 25. So go check it out.

Celebrating the Portuguese holyday 25th of April (of 1974 when we got rid of the evil fascist-alike government) I release irmctl-0.3.0.

November, 28th, 1999:
Basically I have only moved into SourceForge . To celebrate, an upgrade :)

October, 12th, 1999:
Released version 0.2.0, with more code cleaning, a couple bug checks, verification when inserting in hashes, and so on.

October, 6th, 1999:
Released version 0.1.2, with more code cleaning and a couple bug checks.

October, 4th, 1999:
First release: 0.1.[01]! :)


In Setember 1999, I bought a non IRDA infrared receiver, irman, which wasn't at all very well supported under Linux.

Sure there is libirman, sure there is lirc, but the goal of irmctl is to allow its users the ability to execute an arbitrary command at the touvh of a couple of buttons.

Thus, I wrote this program.
