irsimsend — Send simulated IR data.

Synopsis

irsimsend [-k keysym |-l listfile ] [other options] <file>

irsimsend [-v |-h]

irsimsend <configfile>

Description

irsimsend is a simple test tool which given a lircd configuration file will send all keys defined in that file, the keys listed in another file or a symbol defined on the command line.

The program uses the file driver to log all sent data (pulses/spaces durations) into a file 'simsend.out'. The symbols sent are printed on stdout.

Options

-c, --count <count>
Repeat each sent signal <count> times.
-U, --plugindir <path>
Load drivers from path, a ':' separated search path similar to $PATH.
-l,--listfile <path>
Send symbols listed in file instead of just the symbols in the config file. The file could either be listing a single key symbol per line, or have a complete code string like 000000000000a123 01 KEY_POWER brand on each line.
-k, --keysym
Send a single key symbol defined in file.
-s, --start-space <useconds>
Send an initial space before sending data.
-v , --version
Print version and exit.
-h , --help
Print help message.

Files

~/.cache/irsimsend.log
Debug log. Setting the XDG_CACHE_HOME environment variable relocates this file to $XDG_CACHE_HOME/irsimsend.log. The amount of logging respects the LIRC_LOGLEVEL environment variable, defaulting to the debug value in the[lircd] section of lirc_options.conf.
