[Tlf-devel] winkey daemon

I have a working daemon which will operate the winkey keyer. It listens to a 
udp port and 
converts the cwdaemon commands to the format winkey needs, and sends it to the 
serial port 
the winkey unit is connected to.  After starting it goes into the background...

I have tested it with tlf as well as xtlf, and it is a good solution if you 
have problems with the
keying of the cwdaemon...

Version 1.0 implements the main functions:
* cw generation
* PTT lead in
* speed control
* weight control
* tune
* abort message
* a 'keyer_busy' mutex in ~/.winkey

SYNOPSIS [options...]

-n run in foreground for debugging
-p udp port
-d serial device
-s starting speed in wpm

One advantage is that you have a full-blown hardware keyer which is fully 
integrated with 
your contest logger... good for rigs that lack an internal keyer.

Next version will send the functions which are not supported (antenna switching,
rig A/B switching etc.) through to the cwdaemon socket for handling...

You will probably also need to get Device::SerialPort from CPAN.
