default driver and most of the applications.

General Commands (Section 1)
ircat
This program prints config strings to standard output. It can be used to provide remote control input to scripts and to debug your .lircrc file. The argument to...
irexec
irexec executes commands on an IR signal decoded by lircd, the LIRC daemon. It uses an lircrc config file where the config = entries are executed. E. g., given...
irpipe
irpipe is designed to feed data to lircd(8) over a /dev/irpipe device. It's a tool to enter test data to lircd in a way which is identical to real data from...
irpty
irpty connects to lircd to receive infrared codes and converts them to key strokes. E.g. type irpty ~/.config/lircrc -- workbone to control the CD-player...
irrecord
This program will record the signals from your remote control and create a config file for lircd. Although a good deal of effort is put in this program it is...
irsend
Asks the lircd daemon to send one or more CIR (Consumer Infra-Red) commands. This is intended for remote control of electronic devices such as TV boxes, HiFi...
irsimreceive
This is a simple test tool which decodes duration data in datafile using an lircd.conf type configfile. The outputted data is in the same format as on the lircd...
irsimsend
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...
irtestcase
irtestcase is a tool which can record keypresses from a remote together with the decoded values. Given output from another session, it can also verify that the...
irtext2udp
irtext2udp is a filter converting pulse/space printable data such as generated by mode2(1) to the binary format used by the LIRC udp driver. The file argument...
irw
irw will connect to any Unix domain socket and print the received data to stdout. Without a socket argument it will watch /var/run/lirc/lircd. Useful for...
lirc-lsplugins
Tool which writes a simple list with info for each driver found. In particular, it writes info if a plugin can't be loaded e. g., due to unresolved references...
lirc-lsremotes
lirc-lsremotes can parse lirc remote configuration files (i. e., lircd.conf) and display a condensed index line, the complete data and/or diagnostics. When...
lirc-make-devinput
Reads the system header files and creates a devinput.lircd.conf which matches the local system (i. e., the local kernel). It normally requires that the...
mode2
The main purpose of this program is to check operation of your home-brew LIRC receiver hardware and to see the IR waveform of the remote controller without an...
pronto2lirc
Converts an input file to a lircd.conf formatted file.
File Formats (Section 5)
lircd.conf
The file has two purposes: to provide timing information to the driver so it can decode the data to button presses, and to provide a mapping from button presses...
lircrc
lircrc is the last LIRC configuration point in the flow of events from the kernel to the application. It provides a way to translate the application-agnostic...
System Administration (Section 8)
lircd
The main task of lircd is to decode the infrared signals and provide an uniform interface for client applications. Clients can connect to lircd through a Unix...
lircd-setup
This program runs commands defined in the keys code and code1 .. code10 in the modinit section of the config file. It's used as a one-shot service invoked...
lircd-uinput
lircd-uinput reads decoded button press events from a lircd(8) output socket and injects these as key events to the kernel uinput device. The kernel makes these...
lircmd
lircmd reads decoded buttonpress events from a lircd(8) output socket and converts them to mouse events. These events are made available either on the lircmd...
lircrcd
lircrcd reads the given .lircrc config file and synchronises the mode that the LIRC clients such as irexec(1), irxevent(1), etc., are in. Using lircrcd has to...
