irexec - run programs with one button press


irexec [options] [config_file]


This program lets you execute arbitrary commands on an IR signal decoded by lircd, the
LIRC daemon. You can give irexec a command line parameter which has to be a name of a
valid config file. If no command line parameters are given irexec reads the default config
file which is usually ~/.lircrc.

If irexec executes a program it will wait until this program terminates. So append a '&'
to the command string if you don't want that.

The config string consists of the command to be run.

-h --help
display usage summary

-v --version
display version

-d --daemon
run in background

-n --name
use this program name


If you add the --daemon option irexec will fork to background. That way you can easily
start irexec from an init script. In this case you should specify a config file on the
command line as irexec won't be able to find your home directory. Potential uses are
shutting down the computer, starting a dial-up connection etc.


If you start irexec, it reads your ~/.lircrc and reacts only on prog= entries that point
to irexec. If you have included more than one program in your .lircrc, then start all
these programs, they react itself only to their according entries in .lircrc.
