irsimsend - Man Page

Send simulated IR data.


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

irsimsend [-v |-h]

irsimsend <configfile>


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.


-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.



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.
