Hello,

I'm wanting to write a driver for lirc to allow me to transmit IR
signals via a Global Caché GC-100. In essence, this requires me to
communicate with the GC-100 via TCP in response to ioctls (received?)
via /dev/lircX.

Can anyone point me in right direction towards achieving this? Is it
possible to do everything in userspace? Under Linux, there appears to
be something called FUSD, which allows one to write userspace device
drivers. Is there anything similar under FreeBSD?

Do you mean FUSE? There is FUSE for FreeBSD. I have used it with EncFS.
Thanks for the pointer. I did mean FUSD, http://www.circlemud.org/~jelson/software/fusd/, although looking at FUSE, it may well be that that'll do what I need.

Regards,

Chris
