NAME
       ir-keytable - a swiss-knife tool	to handle Remote Controllers.

SYNOPSIS
       ir-keytable [OPTION]... --device	[/dev/input/event* device]
       ir-keytable [OPTION]... --sysdev	[ir class (f. ex. rc0)]
       ir-keytable [OPTION]... [for using the rc0 sysdev]

DESCRIPTION
       ir-keytable  is a tool that lists the Remote Controller devices,	allows
       one to get/set IR keycode/scancode tables, test events generated	by IR,
       and to adjust other Remote Controller options.

       Note:  You  need	to have	read permissions on /dev/input for most	of the
       options to work.

OPTIONS
       -a, --auto-load=CFGFILE
	      Auto-load	a table, based on a  configuration  file.  Only	 works
	      with sysdev.

       -c, --clear
	      clears the old table

       -d, --device=DEV
	      ir device	to control

       -D, --delay=DELAY
	      Sets the delay before repeating a	keystroke

       -k, --set-key=SCANKEY
	      Change scan/key pairs

       -p, --protocol=PROTOCOL
	      Protocol	to enable (the other ones will be disabled). To	enable
	      more than	one, use the option more than one time

       -P, --period=PERIOD
	      Sets the period to repeat	a keystroke

       -r, --read
	      reads the	current	scancode/keycode table

       -s, --sysdev=SYSDEV
	      ir class device to control

       -t, --test
	      test if IR is generating events

       -v, --verbose
	      enables debug messages

       -w, --write=TABLE
	      write (adds) the scancodes to the	device scancode/keycode	 table
	      from the specified TABLE file

       -?, --help
	      Prints the help message

       --usage
	      Give a short usage message

       together.

   The options arguments are:
       DEV    the /dev/input/event* device to control

       SYSDEV the ir class as found at /sys/class/rc

       TABLE  a	file wit a set of scancode=keycode value pairs

       SCANKEY
	      a	set of scancode1=keycode1,scancode2=keycode2.. value pairs

       PROTOCOL
	      protocol name to be enabled (case	insensitive). Supported	proto-
	      cols are:	NEC, RC-5, RC-6,  JVC,	SONY,  SANYO,  LIRC,  RC-5-SZ,
	      SHARP, MCE-KBD, XMP, other, all.

       DELAY  Delay before repeating a keystroke

       PERIOD Period to	repeat a keystroke

       CFGFILE
	      configuration  file  that	 associates a driver/table name	with a
	      keymap file

EXIT STATUS
       On success, it returns 0. Otherwise, it will return the error code.

EXAMPLES
       To list all connected Remote Controller devices:
	    ir-keytable

       To clean	the keycode table and use a newer one:
	    ir-keytable	-c -w /etc/rc_keymaps/nec_terratec_cinergy_xs

       To append more codes to the existing table:
	    ir-keytable	-w /etc/rc_keymaps/nec_terratec_cinergy_xs

       To  read	 the  current  keytable,  on  the  second  remote  controller:
	    ir-keytable	-s rc1 -r
