There is a command-line linux application to drive the Firecracker called BottleRocket. The homepage for bottlerocket is http://www.linuxha.com/bottlerocket/.

control.tcl program displays a drawing that you create
with your favorite paint program (I used xfig), and then overlays
little rectangles to represent where
the X-10 controllers are installed. When your mouse passes over one
of these rectangles, it displays an informative label, like "Coffee Pot".
The controllers can
be turned on and off by clicking them with left and right mouse buttons.
The control.tcl program has these features:
