ircat - print strings when pressing buttons
ircat [options] <prog>
This program prints config strings to standard output. It can be used to provide remote control input to scripts and to debug your .lircrc file. The argument to the program is the program name, as it appears in the prog entries in .lircrc. -h --help Display usage summary. -v --version Display version. -c --config=<file> Set config file.
If .lircrc contains: begin prog = myprog button = KEY_CHANNELUP config = next_file end then $ ircat myprog will print "next_file" (followed by newline) every time the button bound to KEY_CHANNELUP is pressed.
