Description David Thiel 2005-11-22 04:30:27 UTC
UIRD is software for UNIX to control stuff with your normal remote
control. The software is designed to interface with the UIRR, Universal
IR Receiver, which is a piece of hardware that you can easily build

It also works with the IRman, which is why I ported it.

Ah, you're right. I'll fix.

I'm not sure what you mean - I'm just making the plist in the Makefile
itself, and it seems to clean up after itself.

Comment 5 David Thiel 2005-11-22 22:52:52 UTC
Ok, here's the fix for CFLAGS/CC. I can't find anything wrong with the
plist, it seems to be compliant with the PHB. Please advise.

You seem to have copy/pasted everything 1:1 from the project website which
contains a bit too much information for pkg-descr. The formatting is IMHO not
"optimal" either.

What do you think about the following version of pkg-descr:

--- pkg-descr counter-proposal begins here ---
UIRD is designed to interface with the UIRR (Universal IR Receiver) which is a
piece of hardware that you can easily build yourself.


  * Embedded perl-interpreter for advanced scripting features
  * Learning mode - interactively press a button on your remote and then enter
    what should happend every time you push that button
  * Simple configuration-file for specifying what should happen when you push a
    particular button
  * Network mode sends IR-data encapsulated in UDP-packets over the network to a
    remote host

Comment 7 David Thiel 2005-11-23 18:19:13 UTC
Ah, so you did mean pkg-descr. :) What you sent looks fine to me, but I
would suggest that the first bit be:

UIRD is software to control your PC via a normal remote control. It is
designed to interface with the UIRR(Universal IR Receiver), which is a
piece of hardware that you can easily build yourself.

I think the part saying that you can use a normal remote to control
a PC communicates what it does most effectively, and then goes into
slightly more detail.
