       .lircrc.

       -c --config=<file>
              Set config file.

EXAMPLES

       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.
