Chapter 5. Remotely Control Your Computer > Infrared Signal Processor (Windows)

5.4. Infrared Signal Processor (Windows)

You've got your LIRC IR receiver ready to go and you want to use it to control your software—but you don't run Linux. You might reasonably assume that the Linux Infrared Remote Control package runs only on Linux; however, you'd be wrong. There's a port of LIRC for Windows named WinLIRC.
