       lircrcd - Synchronize lircrc state among client applications.


       lircrcd [options] config-file


       lircrcd  reads  the  given  .lircrc  config  file  and synchronises the mode that the LIRC
       clients such as irexec(1), irxevent(1), etc., are in. Using lircrcd has to  be  explicitly
       enabled  in  the  lircrc  config file by adding the following line at the beginning of the

              lircrc_class default

       This must be done at the top-level file, not an  included  one.  The  lircrc_class  string
       (here "default") could actually be anything; clients using the same string in their lircrc
       will be synchronized.


       -h --help
              Display help message.

       -v --version
              Display version.

       -p, --permission=mode
              The --permission option gives the file permission of the Unix domain socket lircrcd
              creates  on  startup  in octal representation. Read the documentation for chmod for
              further details. If no --permission option is given when the socket is created  the
              default  is  to give only the user owning the file read and write permissions (0600
              in octal representation).

       -o, --output=socket
              With the --output option you can select the Unix domain socket, which lircrcd  will
              create. The default is to create a socket in VARRUNDIR (/var/run/lirc), see FILES.


       lircrcd  syntactically  uses the same protocol as lircd described in the lircd(8) manpage.
       It supports the following commands:

       IDENT ident
           Each program connecting to lircrcd identifies itself using this program.  ident is the
           string that is used in the Prog =  token inside the .lircrc file.

       CODE code
           When  the  client  receives  the code string from lircd it will send it to lircrcd and
           will receive back the applicable config string from the .lircrc config file. It should
           resend the CODE command until nothing is returned back which means that nothing (more)
           should happen in response to code. This command is used each time the lirc_code2char()
           function is called by a client.

           lircrcd will return the current mode string.

       SETMODE mode
           lircrcd will set the actual mode, reflecting a mode in the .lircrc file.


       lircrcd  creates  its  socket(s)  in  the VARRUNDIR directory (/var/run/lirc).  The socket
       basename includes the user UID and the string from the lircrc_class option.


       The documentation for lirc is maintained as html pages. They are located  under  html/  in
       the documentation directory.
