       PulseView - Qt-based LA/scope/MSO GUI for sigrok


       pulseview [OPTIONS] [FILE]


       PulseView  is  a  cross-platform  Qt-based  GUI for the sigrok software suite for test and
       measurement equipment such as logic analyzers, oscilloscopes, MSOs, and more.


       PulseView has very few command line options, as most configuration elements are  available
       from the GUI itself.

       If  the optional FILE argument is supplied, PulseView tries to open the specified file. It
       has to be in the "libsigrok session" format (.sr) unless -I is used to specify  the  input
       file format.

       -l, --loglevel
              Set  the  libsigrok  and  libsigrokdecode loglevel. At the moment PulseView doesn't
              support setting the two loglevels independently. The higher the  number,  the  more
              debug output will be printed. Valid loglevels are:

              0   None
              1   Error
              2   Warnings
              3   Informational
              4   Debug
              5   Spew

       -h, -?, --help
              Show a help text and exit.

       -V, --version
              Show version information and exit.

       -d, --driver <drivername>
              Specify  the  capture device to connect to. If the --driver option is not supplied,
              PulseView attempts to re-connect to the most recently used device,  or  auto-detect
              available devices.

       -D, --dont-scan
              Usually  PulseView  automatically scans all drivers to find suitable devices during
              program startup. This option disables the auto-scan.  Users can either specify  the
              --driver  option  to  pick  a  device at startup, or interactively scan for devices
              after PulseView has finished starting up.

       -i, --input-file <filename>
              Load input from a file. If the --input-format option  is  not  supplied,  PulseView
              attempts to load the file as a sigrok session file.

       -I, --input-format <format>
              Specifies the format of the input file to be loaded.

       -c, --clean
              Prevents  the  previously used sessions to be restored from settings storage.  This
              is useful if you want only a single session with the file given on the command line
              instead of restoring all previously used sessions as well.

       CTRL+- Zoom out.

       CTRL+q Quit, i.e. shutdown PulseView (closing all session tabs).
