NAME

       irpty - Pseudo tty driver.

SYNOPSIS

       irpty [options] config_file -- program [args ...]

DESCRIPTION

       irpty  connects  to lircd to receive infrared codes and converts them to key strokes. E.g.
       type irpty ~/.config/lircrc -- workbone to control  the  CD-player  program  workbone.  Of
       course  you  will  have  to  create an appropriate config file for this purpose first. The
       config string will be passed to the desired application. Note  that  you  can  use  escape
       sequences  to  specify  non  printable  characters. Have a look at the .lircrc file format
       description for details.
