Returns non-zero if operation successful. The data structure will be described next. To compile in-tree and assuming autogen. Plugins can also easily be built out-of tree. Since the plugin code is called only indirectly through the hardware struct, no extern “C” declarations are required in the plugin code. Function called for suspending the driver.

In the configuration file, this can be userspac by the lines one 0 0 and one 0 0which is clearly not usable without the context, namely the hardware used for capturing. On sending, it can be fed with a list of durations, and it sends these on- and off-periods as modulated IR signals.
This hardware in general decodes the IR signal in its own hardware, and delivers, for ,irc signals, an integer code denoting the code received like “play”. This is the basic, possibly expensive steps taken to make the device usable.
Dynamically loaded drivers was introduced LIRC just recently, replacing the statically linked drivers. Function called for suspending the driver. The struct driver is the data structure representing the driver for LIRC.
Documentation of the LIRC driver API version 2.
Some standard error codes are defined in driver. The “learns” configuration files from such a device is of very limited lirrc, and not portable to other IR devices, since timing information is missing.
Returns non-zero if operation successful.
A simple generic Makefile is provided in the Appendix, another example is available in the sources as ref Makefile. Since the plugin code is called only indirectly through the hardware struct, no extern “C” declarations are required in the plugin code. New files are automatically picked up.
See the Makefile in Appendix 2. Also note that some function pointer may be NULL, indicating that the driver does not implement the said functionality e. The driver is loaded, used and unloaded by the executing program according to the following:.
A complete driver package consists of three files: The last LIRC version is available in the sources. A user space driver is a C file where all the functions are declared statici. At the time of writing, there are about 44 plugins and 54 drivers.
Depending on the particular driver and hardware, additional functionality can be implemented here, with semantics as determined by the driver.
Only some include files from LIRC are needed. Therefore, the decomposition between “program” and driver is a priori not always necessary, but instead serves modularization and structuring. An IR signal consists of a sequence of on-times pulses and off-times gaps. Much IR hardware was not designed as general-purpose IR hardware, but to allow e. Extra libraries, as well as include files, can be simply added to the Makefile or Makefile.
We disregard modulation for the time being.
A full-fledged IR driver, on reading, can deliver the timing of these period “durations”. The tool lirc-lsplugins can be used to uaerspace overviews of the drivers and their capabilities. It turned out to be necessary to slighty augment the driver API version 1.
Each such file contains one or more driver s visible in the user interface. The data structure will be described next. In this way a certain encapsulation is achieved. It is possible to generate console output in any way; writing on stdout or stderrusing e. The device might get closed as part of error handling, so calling code should be prepared to reopen device if required.
