NTLK How to program the IRDA port?

I have an old IR remote that I would like to use with my Newton to
trigger various, programmable events. Basically, I am having trouble
writing an app to show what data is coming into the Newtons IR port.
Once I can see the strings the remote is sending, triggering events
based upon that [hopefully] shouldn't be too hard... Can someone point
me in the right direction to some more info on this? Last I had heard,
there were no 'Learning, Universal remote' type programs on the Newton
[please correct me if I am wrong tho], but this could easily lead to one
if I can get a few pointers.

Thanks in advance for all your help.
