(and InfraJoy hardware design)
(InfraJoy version 3.1)

The InfraRexx software along with the InfraJoy hardware serve as
an ARexx-Infrared interface, that adds the function of an infrared
remote controller to your Amiga, and more.
With this software and hardware you can:
o Control external audio/video devices via ARexx commands.
o Control Amiga programs via a common remote control unit.
o Learn and edit new remote control infrared commands.
For example you can control a moduleplayer via your compact
disc player remote control unit. Or, control your video tape
recorder via a graphic user interface or an ARexx script.
The main features are:
o Seperate editor (with learner) and ARexx host commodity.
o Multitasking-friendly infrared sampling monitor, with very
low system overhead during monitoring; can also be disabled.
o Font-sensitive, style-compliant graphic user interface.
o Supports localization under Workbench 2.1 (or better).
o Uses 3.x functions and gadtools features if present.
o Lowcost hardware for joystickport, with optional throughput.
o Uses the Amiga Installer Utility to install onto (hard)disk.
o Added some user requested features. Removed reported bugs.
o Swedish language catalog included.
o Completer codesets. Added JVC codeset.
o Included RexxEvent; links ARexx commands to input events.
InfraRexx needs at least AmigaOS version 2.04, and the commodity
needs RexxMast to be running in order to be useful. The software
is useless without the small InfraJoy hardware add-on, off which
the design and full building instructions are included. The
hardware can also be ordered from one of the authors.
Free. The optional registration fee is USD 10. The minimal required
hardware costs about USD 8 if self-built, but can also be ordered
for the amount of USD 17, which provides free registration and
one free update.
Freeware; freely distributable software and hardware design.
