fvnet — Explore and retrieve from FireVision instances on the network

Synopsis

fvnet -e
fvnet -s -n host[:port]]
fvnet <-i|-j|-c|-C> -n host[:port]]/id file

Description

Explore FireVision instances on the network and interact with those instances. In the first form the network is explored using mDNS-SD service discovery to find FireVision Fountain instances. These are then queried for existing images and lookup tables.

In the second form the available images and lookup tables are queried from a specified host.

The third form finally allows for retrieving images and retrieving or pushing colormaps reading from or writing to file.

Options

-h

-e
Explore the local network using service discovery.
-s

-n host[:port]][/id]
The network string defining the host and optionally port to connect to. For interaction with a particular image or colormap the ID is passed.
-i
Retrieve FireVision raw image defined with -n and write it to file. The /id suffix must be given with the appropriate ID.
-j
Retrieve JPEG image defined with -n and write it to file. The /id suffix must be given with the appropriate ID.
-c
Retrieve colormap defined with -n and write it to file. The /id suffix must be given with the appropriate ID.
-c
