This is an acpi client for Linux, originally written by Grahame Bowland
and. Copyright (C) 2001 Grahame Bowland. Please see the manpage
for details; INSTALL for installation info.
I took over and moved the package to sourceforge in 2008. The new address is
Debian packages of this software are currently available. It should
be possible to run "apt-get install acpi" and have a recent version
installed. The same holds for other distributions of course.
Please send bug reports, requests for features, etc to
email@example.com. If there is a bug in the output of "acpi",
please include a tar file of /proc/acpi or /sys/class depending on the
interface you used. This will allow me to test the behaviour of the program.
