Summary0000314: Add magic for Pronto CCF files
DescriptionI've attached a small magic section for identifying Philips Pronto IR remote control CCF exchange format files.


file -m ccf_magic Panasonic.ccf
Panasonic.ccf: Philips Pronto IR remote control CCF

Remote control databases such as remote central carry a lot of CCF files, cf. e.g. for the above example file.

I've also tested it with other CCF files.

I couldn't find real documentation for the CCF file format, but there are some open source utilities which use these magic bytes.

See for example my extract utility:

ccf_magic (294 bytes)   
# Exchange format for Philips Pronto universal infrared remote controls
# A CCF file describes a learned/customized remote control,
# i.e. it contains button UI and infrared pulse code definitions
# (Georg Sauthoff)
