ppowerd - Daemon for controlling x10 hardware.
Ppowerd is the daemon program for accessing x10 hardware. Ppowerd sits in the background waiting for client requests or for x10 messages to come in over the power line. If you have defined a macro in your configuration file and the event received is a valid trigger for it, the macro will be executed. Macros can contain UNIX commands to run as well as commands to send to the x10 hardware.
