NAME

Linux::Input::Wiimote - Perl interface to the libcwiimote library

SYNOPSIS

    This is a perl interface to the C library libcwiimote ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/libwiimote/ ).
    It implements most of that API and provides access to most functions of the wiimote.

    libcwiimote version 0.04 must be installed and the bluetooth dameon must be running

    Auto discovery is not yet built in.  You must know the id of your wiimote.  You can use hcitool scan
    to find the id.

METHODS

    wiimote_connect( ID OF YOUR WIIMOTE ): pass in the id of your wiimote such as '00:19:1D:75:CC:30'.  Returns 0 on success
    wiimote_update : updates the wiimote.  Should be called often

    wiimote_discover: discovers and returns the id of the last wiimote it sees.  WARNING, this method has bugs and will segfault if it doesn't find a wii quickly
    set_wiimote_rumble:  starts/stops rumble.  Pass in 1 to start, 0 to stop
    set_wiimote_ir:  starts/stops ir sensor.  Pass in 1 to start, 0 to stop

    get_wiimote_tilt_x
    get_wiimote_tilt_y
    get_wiimote_tilt_z

    get_wiimote_axis_x
    get_wiimote_axis_y
    get_wiimote_axis_z

    get_wiimote_ext_nunchuk_axis_x
    get_wiimote_ext_nunchuk_axis_y
    get_wiimote_ext_nunchuk_axis_z

    get_wiimote_ext_nunchuk_joyx
    get_wiimote_ext_nunchuk_joyy

    IR sensor position (must first set_wiimote_ir(1) to start ir sensor) NOT YET FINISHED:
    get_wiimote_ir1_y
    get_wiimote_ir1_x
    get_wiimote_ir1_size

    get_wiimote_ir2_y
    get_wiimote_ir2_x
    get_wiimote_ir2_size

    get_wiimote_ir3_y
    get_wiimote_ir3_x
    get_wiimote_ir3_size

    get_wiimote_ir4_y
    get_wiimote_ir4_x
    get_wiimote_ir4_size

    Methods below return 0 or 1 depending on if key is pressed:

    get_wiimote_keys_home
    get_wiimote_keys_minus
    get_wiimote_keys_a
    get_wiimote_keys_b
    get_wiimote_keys_1
    get_wiimote_keys_2
    get_wiimote_keys_plus
    get_wiimote_keys_up
    get_wiimote_keys_down
    get_wiimote_keys_right
    get_wiimote_keys_left
    get_wiimote_keys_bits

EXAMPLE

    use Linux::Input::Wiimote;

    my $wii = new Linux::Input::Wiimote;

    $wii->wiimote_connect('00:19:1D:75:CC:30');

    while ( $wii->is_open() ) {
        $wii->wiimote_update();
        print "Wiimote Key bits: " . $wii->get_wiimote_keys_bits() . "\n";
    }

TODO

  • Add support for multiple remotes (it is already in libcmote)

  • Add auto descovery of wiimote

KNOWN BUGS

  • wiimote_discover can cause a segfault
