Someone who knows alot abou electrical engineering, physics, and programming
OK, first of all, I am somewhat doubtful that anyone on this board knows the answer, but I'll give it a shot.
I've been working with Palm OS programming, on the GNU palm compiler. I am looking to do neat things with the IR port on the top. Specifically, detect IR pulses, record them, and rebroadcast them at a later time.
However, I don't know enough about the physics behind it. I can work with the high level IR aspects of the device, but they all involve data connections to other devices. The problem being, I want to work in a connectionless manner, like a television's remote control.
So what I am endeavouring is roughly equivalent to building a modem, when all I know is socket programming.
I can point you to all the docs, but I just don't understand how to access the IR port in a very low level fashion, and transmit at a specific..., uh, frequency or whatever. See? I don't even know what factor of an infrared pulse distinguishes it from any other.
Can anyone help me with this?
