Hamlib is a library that translates
individual radio control into a common API
(Application Programming Interface) to ease
the task of application authors seeking radio
and rotator control. The popular Fldigi
program uses Hamlib as does CQRlog for Linux.
While developed primarily on Linux, Hamlib is
also available for Microsoft Windows, has
been ported to OS X as well as other Uinix
flavors such as FreeBSD and possibly more.
Hamlib is released under the Lesser GNU
Public License, LGPL, which allows
application authors to choose the license
they prefer for their programs while still
being able to use the Hamlib library (certain
utilities provided in the Hamlib release are
licensed under the GNU Public License, GPL).
Hamlib has been in active development since
July 2000 as a project begun by Frank
Singleton, VK3FCS/KN5WS. Hamlib is now
maintained by Stephané Fillod, F8CFE, and a
number of contributors from around the world.
Many Linux distributions such as Ubuntu,
Debian, Fedora, Open SuSE, and others include
Hamlib in their repositories. An MS Windows
DLL is provided by the Hamlib project and
available for download from the SourceForge
