NAMElircrcd - Synchronize lircrc state among client applications.
SYNOPSISlircrcd [options] config-file
DESCRIPTIONlircrcd 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 be explicitly enabled in the lircrc config file by adding the following line at the beginning of the file:
- lircrc_class default This must be done at the top-level file, not an included one. The lircrc_class string (here "default") could actually be anything; clients using the same string in their lircrc will be synchronized.
- -h --help
- Display help message.
- -v --version
- Display version.
- -p, --permission=mode
- The --permission option gives the file permission of the Unix domain socket lircrcd creates on startup in octal representation. Read the documentation for chmod for further details. If no --permission option is given when the socket is created the default is to give only the user owning the file read and write permissions (0600 in octal representation).
- -o, --output=socket
With the --output option you can select the Unix domain socket, which
lircrcd will create. The default is to create a socket in VARRUNDIR
(/var/run/lirc), see FILES.
lircrcd syntactically uses the same protocol as lircd described in the lircd(8) manpage. It supports the following commands:
- IDENT ident
Each program connecting to lircrcd identifies itself using this program.
ident is the string that is used in the Prog = token inside
the .lircrc file.
- CODE code
When the client receives the code string from lircd it will send it to
lircrcd and will receive back the applicable config string from the .lircrc
config file. It should resend the CODE command until nothing is
returned back which means that nothing (more) should happen in response
to code. This command is used each time the lirc_code2char()
function is called by a client.
lircrcd will return the current mode string.
- SETMODE mode
lircrcd will set the actual mode, reflecting a mode in the .lircrc
