irw - Send data from Unix domain socket to stdout
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.
On receiving SIGUSR1 irw makes a clean exit.
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
The documentation for lirc is maintained as html pages. They are located under html/ in the documentation directory.
