Welcome to the Linux-IrDA Project

Welcome to the Linux-IrDA project. The overall goal of this project is to make an implementation of the IrDATM standards specifications for the Linux kernel. The code is licensed under the GNU Public licence (GPL) and is now included in Linux-2.2.x and Linux 2.4.x kernel series.

Why IrDA? IrDA is simply much more fun than other technologies! Put your hand in the beam and watch your adaptive applications do their best.

IrDATM (Infrared Data Association) is an industry standard for infrared wireless communication. Most laptops sold today are equipped with an IrDA compliant infrared transceiver, which enables you to communicate with devices such as printers, modems, fax, LAN, and other laptops. Speeds range from 2400bps-4Mbps.

Sourceforge kindly offer web space, bandwith, mailing lists and CVS resources to operate Linux-IrDA Project. We want to thank them for such nice support for open-source projects.
