IR File Chooser

Infra Red (IR) File Chooser is a remote-controlled menu for selecting files and loading them by an assigned program. You can add as many filetypes and associated programs as you wish. The functionality of Infra Red (IR) File Chooser may be extended using Perl or Shell scripts. The GUI was created with Perl::GTK and it uses RCU::Lirc to fetch the remote controller commands.
