"Calling all geeks!"
« on: October 06, 2010, 12:54:41 PM »

So says their blog: http://blog.x10.com/x10-community/calling-all-x10-linux-and-mac-geeks/#comment-23

But I'll confess I'm a little confused. I followed their links to download their SDK and all I see are Windows specific things: how to communicate with the CM15 via their Scripting interface.

Am I just not getting it?
Or are they thinking I'll be able to get this stuff running on Linux?   ???
Or are there other docs buried in there that I just can't see?    ???

Filling out the form takes you to:
http://www.activehomepro.com/sdk/sdk-info.html
where you can download the SDK installer and some sample code.

From the looks of the files, the SDK package hasn't been updated since 2005.
I am pretty sure I've seen updated versions of the ahcmd.exe floating around the forums, but I don't recall where offhand.

I also have not seen anything related to Linux in the SDK information.

yeah - I did that and I downloaded the stuff just in case they had tossed a CM15 protocol doc in there.
I didn't see nuttin.  :)


The sample code just lets you use Windows specific things to interact with the device.
If they want Linux and Mac geeks to show up, maybe some one ought'a point this small omission out! :)

Noam/Brandt -- I see your replies on the blog.  Thanks guys!  :)

Maybe we can move them along a little bit.
Either that or point out the obvious shortcomings of their post asking for Linux and Mac developers to call a DLL.
