NAME

       irdaping - sends IrDA test frames

SYNOPSIS

       irdaping [ daddr ] [ -s framesize ]

OPTIONS

       daddr ...

       -s framesize ...

DESCRIPTION

       This  is a program similar to ping(8). It sends IrDA test frames (added
       some userdata which contains the frame number and the  time  the  frame
       was sent). You can change the size of the frame by using the -s option.
       To get daddr you may use irdadump.

       irdaping must be run as root or installed setuid root, as  it  requires
       root privileges.

EXAMPLES

       irdaping <daddr> [-s <framesize>]

       You  may  use  an  alias,  which  does  not  use  any  parameter  alias
       irping="irdaping     \grep     daddr      /proc/net/irda/discovery|sed
       s/.*daddr://\" It works fine when there is only one discovered client.
