cnee record, replays or distributes X11 data

Synopsis

cnee [options]

Description

The program cnee can record and replay an X session. cnee also has the ability to distribute events to multiple displays. cnee gets copies of X protocol data from the X server. These are either printed to file ( record mode) or replayed and synchronised ( replay mode). During record and replay cnee can distribute the record/replayed events to multiple displays.
