ir-ctl: add new tool for sending & receiving raw IR
Currently v4l-utils has no tooling provided for receiving and sending raw IR using the lirc interface. Some of this can be done using various tools from the user-space lirc package, but not everything is covered. We want to be able to do the following: - List all the features that a lirc device provides - Set all possible receiving and sending parameters - Send raw IR, formatted as a text file - Record raw IR, with output in the same format as for sending - Testbed for lirc drivers. Driver misbehaviour is reported The need for this is not new. The manufacturer of the IguanaWorks IR device have a similar tool which is IguanaIR specific: http://www.iguanaworks.net/2012/igclient-examples/ Also RedRat3 provide a similar tools but this uses a signal database for sending IR, and is redrat specific. http://www.redrat.co.uk/software/redrat-linux-ir-tools/ Lirc provides a tool for reading raw IR but no method of sending it. http://www.lirc.org/html/mode2.html None of these provides full coverage of the basic raw IR lirc interface, hence v4l-utils seems like logical place to provide this functionality. It can be used as a tool for testing features of lirc drivers. Signed-off-by: Sean Young <sean@mess.org>
