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 ~/.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.
