Blackout

Command line control of screen and keyboard backlight.

I made this in 2013 and don't use it much, so this isn't maintained. One of the functions it uses is deprecated, but otherwise I don't expect this to have many issues.

Installation

On Mac OS X, run make blackout.

Usage

./blackout: command line control of screen and keyboard backlight.
    -b      (b)lack out the screen.
    -f      (f)ade or gradually increase the brightness.
    -h      display this (h)elp message.
    -s [BRIGHTNESS] set the (s)creen to BRIGHTNESS.
            BRIGHTNESS is a real number between 0 and 1.
    -k [BRIGHTNESS] set the (k)eyboard backlight to BRIGHTNESS.

N.B.: argument parsing is picky! Flags must be separate, e.g.:
    $ ./blackout -b -f
