Lid lid (n): 1. A removable or hinged cover for a hollow receptacle or box. 2. An inept or otherwise incompetent amateur radio operator. What is it? ----------- Lid aims to be an Perl-based all-encompassing helper for all things amateur radio. The plan is to have a single daemon which can monitor the DX cluster, APRS messages, PSKReporter spots, WSPR spots, etc., and then record/ report/alert based on that information. Why 'lid'? ---------- Because I'm unimaginative. Can I use it? ------------- In short: No. Not so short: Not just yet... This is still very much alpha at the moment. All that is in place is the framework for loading modules and passing messages between them. If you *really* want to try it (and seriously, it doesn't do anything yet!), checkout a copy of the code and run it:- # ./lid.pl ...and watch the pretty colourful debug messages fly by. By default, it'll start a TCP listener on port 4321.
