ncid-modules — NCID client output modules overview
NCID output modules are used to extend the functionality of the client. They are mostly simple shell scripts although there is one program for the TiVo that acts like a module.
Module names are of the format: ncid-<name>.
Modules are normally called by the client using the command line:
ncid --no-gui --program ncid-<name>
The client can only call one module at a time, but multiple clients can each have a different output module.
Each module may have a configuration file called ncid-<name>.conf>. The ncid-<name>.conf> file understands three line types:
- blank line:
- comment line:
begins with a '#' and is ignored
- shell variable:
set to a value, for example: foo=bar
The current modules distributed with NCID are:
ncid.1, ncid.conf.5, ncid-initmodem.1, ncid-kpopup.1, ncid-mysql.1, ncid-mythtv.1, ncid-notify.1, ncid-page.1, ncid-samba.1, ncid-skel.1, ncid-speak.1, ncid-wakeup.1 ncid-yac.1
