Status

2020–05–01 Implemented hostname-based scheme. Using the modern getaddrinfo(3) call, mdns (hostname.local names) get resolved, an alternative to the ARP/MAC based method when using DHCP-assigned addresses.

2020–04–29 Split proximmon out of pianod2 project when it became apparent that using it as a library violated the done-one-thing-well and separation-of-concerns rules.

Documentation

Thanks to…

Thanks to all those, too numerous to list, who created and maintain tools and libraries I use to create software: Dimitri van Heesch for Doxygen, everyone behind C++ and the STL, Fletcher Penny for multimarkdown, CodeLite for making a decent Linux IDE, Subversion for providing good source control, and Linux Mint for making a pleasurable distro to an escaped Mac user.
