NAME

irw - Send data from Unix domain socket to stdout  

SYNOPSIS

irw [socket]  

DESCRIPTION

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 debugging.

Options:

-h --help
Display usage summary
-v --version
Display version
 

SIGNALS

On receiving SIGUSR1 irw makes a clean exit.  

NOTES

Since the lircd socket supports multiple clients, irw can run in parallell with other applications.

irw does nothing more than dumps a unix-domain socket, a task which many standard tools also can do. E. g., the ncat(1) tool can be used instead of irw to provide more flexibility (but without any sane default socket):

    ncat -U /var/run/lirc/lircd

 

SEE ALSO

The documentation for lirc is maintained as html pages. They are located under html/ in the documentation directory.
