evemu-device, evemu-play, evemu-event — create a virtual input device and replay an event sequence

Synopsis

evemu-device [description-file]
evemu-play /dev/input/eventX < event-sequence
evemu-play event-sequence.txt
evemu-event /dev/input/eventX [--sync] --type <type> --code <code> --value <value>

Description

evemu-device creates a virtual input device based on the description-file. This description is usually created by evemu-describe(1). evemu-device then creates a new input device with uinput and prints the name and the device file to stdout.

evemu-play replays the event sequence given on stdin through the input device. The event sequence must be in the form created by evemu-record(1). If the argument is a file containing a recording, evemu-play creates the device and prompts the user for an interactive replay of the events.

evemu-event plays exactly one event with the current time. If --sync is given, evemu-event generates an EV_SYN event after the event. The event type and code may be specified as the numerical value or the symbolic name from linux/input.h.

evemu-device must be able to write to the uinput device node, and evemu-play must be able to write to the device node specified; in most cases this means it must be run as root.
