plircc is a replacement for irexec and irxevent. It implements a modified stack automaton to keep track of the remote control state. Its configuration is far more powerful and easier than the classic .lircrc way. It has OSD support, so you can display many things on the screen for instant visual user feedback. It also tries to monitor the processes to automatically jump to good state when the user launches an application supported by the configuration file.
