wait4remote

wait4remote is tiny utility that you can use from bourne shell scripts to wait for a button push on the remote controller.

# ./wait4remote 

- wait for keys or buttons to be pushed on remote control
[-v] [-t sec] x,str [ y,str ... ]

 options:
        -v       : verbose, print key codes
        -t sec   : timeout waiting for button after 'sec' seconds
       x,str     : 1,eject 2,info. Return 1 when Eject button pushed
If this program does not know the remote control key code, you can
use 1,239 for EJECT.


Jorgen Lundman <lundman@lundman.net>

If you use "1,EJECT 2,INFO" as the argument, wait4remote will return code "1" when EJECT button is pushed, or "2" when INFO button is pushed.

If bourne shell you can use:

wait4remote 1,EJECT 2,INFO
if [ $? = 2 ]; then
  echo "INFO button was pushed"
fi

If the lirc startup warnings are annoying, just create an empty file.

# cd /tmp
# touch .wait4remoterc
# ./wait4remote 1,239
