Grifcat is a simple utility which monitors a Griffin Powermate and sends state change information to the calling script.
Version: 0.2.1Grifcat is a simple utility which monitors a Griffin Powermate and sends state change information to the calling script. It tracks the button and wheel motion, reporting each move as it occurs and accumulating net changes in both directions.
Operating System: Linux
It is convenient for script writers and those looking for an easy way to integrate the powermate into their applications via a simple coprocess. Grifcat uses libusb to access the USB in a platform independent manner.
What's New in This Release:
· Fixed bug preventing grifcat from outputting on systems whose stdio library detects and buffers non-terminal i/o.
· Disabled output of read timeouts unless verbose mode enabled
