ircat - print strings when pressing buttons
This program prints config strings to standard output. It can be used to provide remote control input to scripts and to debug your .lircrc file.
The argument to the program is the program name, as it appears in the prog entries in .lircrc.
If .lircrc contains:
begin prog = myprog button = KEY_CHANNELUP config = next_file end
$ ircat myprog
will print "next_file" (followed by newline) every time the button bound to KEY_CHANNELUP is pressed.
The documentation for lirc is maintained as html pages. They are located under html/ in the documentation directory.
This document was created by
using the manual pages.
