NAME
       irexec -	run programs with one button press

SYNOPSIS
       irexec [options]	[config_file]

DESCRIPTION
       This  program  lets  you	execute	arbitrary commands on an IR signal de-
       coded by	lircd, the LIRC	daemon.	You can	give irexec a command line pa-
       rameter	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	termi-
       nates.  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

OPTIONS
       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.

NOTE
       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 pro-
       gram in your .lircrc, then start	all these programs, they react	itself
       only to their according entries in .lircrc.

SEE ALSO
       The  documentation  for	lirc is	maintained as html pages. They are lo-
       cated under html/ in the	documentation directory.
