IControl is a software program meant to interpret signals from Creative's RM-900 remote control and accompanying IR LiveDrive! receiver unit.
IControl is currently capable of sending input to various programs (including XMMS, Xine, XawTV, XScreensaver, et al), as well as circulating window stacking order (sending windows to the background) and changing input focus. Furthermore, IControl will soon support other remote controls beyond the RM-900 which are all interpretable by the LiveDrive! unit.
IControl is completely configurable through its .conf files, allowing the user to map any key to any action the rcontrol daemon supports. And development is in the works to allow IControl to start programs, interface with devices, or even shut the computer down.
