     NAME
          x10 - X10 user programs

     SYNOPSIS
          x10/ox10 [ file... ]

          x10/gui [ dir [ file... ] ]

     DESCRIPTION
          These programs are user utilites to be used together with
          the x10(4) X10 controller program. The gui program is a
          graphical user interface that shows the status of the X10
          devices.  It presents a box for each control that is shown
          in yellow when the device is on. A click with mouse button 3
          or button 1 on any device would toggle its state. If the
          command fails, the device is shown in red for a while. A
          click with mouse button 2 would toggle the write permission
          on the file (useful to prevent other commands from switching
          the device). The devices shown are those in /devs/x10 or in
          dir (when specified). If a set of file arguments is given,
          only those devices are shown.

          Ox10 is similar to gui but intended for use within omero(1).
          Its arguments are the list of files/directories where to
          find the X10 devices. By default, /devs/x10 is used and only
          devices configured with a name are shown.

          Power is a program that controls the power source of termi-
          nals and lights as well as the audio output volume depending
          on the presence of a human in the room, as determined by the
          X10 device specified by whofile.

          Each termfile given is switched off when there is no human
          detected by more than half an hour. It is switched on when
          the human comes back.

          Each light given is switched off when there is no human
          detected by more than one minute. It is switched on when the
          human comes back.

          Each volfile volume control given to option -v is set to
          zero (mute) when there is no human during more than one
          minute. The volume is restored to its previous value when
          the human comes back. If a volume file is given to option -n
          the volume is lowered to a 40% when there is a human
          detected, and restored to its previous state otherwise. This
          option is useful to lower the volume level while a visit is

     EXAMPLE
          Run this at your cpu server so your terminal power and room
          light are handled from there.
               ; cpu
               cpu% 9fs x10  && cd /n/x10
               cpu% x10/power -t pwr:136term -l pwr:136light who:136
          Run this at your terminal to adjust your volume level.
               ; 9fs x10  && cd /n/x10
               ; x10/power -v /dev/volume who:136

     BUGS
          Too many user interfaces. All but ox10 will go in the
          future. X10 is not reliable.
