Arduino Infrared Remote Library

This is a very cool bit of software made by Ken Shirriff. It's an Arduino library containing inferred remote codes that will work with a variety of devices. The Arduino IRremote library works two ways. You can either control your Arduino through a standard infrared remote control or use your Arduino to control other devices such as a TV, stereo, etc.
Downloads and full instructions for using this code are available here:
 I'm going to look into using this library sometime in the future. I think it would work well for an Arduino universal remote or TV-B Gone and there is several examples on the library's GitHub wiki that will definitely be a great help to anyone interested in using it.
