MIDICAT(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		    MIDICAT(1)

NAME
     midicat --	send to	or receive from	MIDI ports

SYNOPSIS
     midicat [-d] [-i file] [-o	file] [-q port]

DESCRIPTION
     The midicat utility receives MIDI data from the given input MIDI port
     and/or sends it to	the given output MIDI port.  The options are as	fol-
     lows:

     -d	     Dump transferred data in hex on stderr.

     -i	file
	     Read MIDI data from this file instead of receiving	it from	the
	     MIDI port.	 If the	option argument	is `-' then standard input
	     will be used.

     -o	file
	     Write MIDI	data to	this file instead of sending it	to the MIDI
	     port.  If the option argument is `-' then standard	output will be
	     used.

     -q	port
	     Use this sndio(7) MIDI port for input/output.  If the option is
	     used twice, the first one specifies the input port	and the	second
	     one the output port.

     If	no files are specified,	then midicat transfers data from the MIDI in-
     put port to the MIDI output port.

EXAMPLES
     Send the given file to rmidi/0:

	   $ midicat -i	file.syx -q rmidi/0

     Dump data received	from rmidi/0 to	stderr:

	   $ midicat -d	-q rmidi/0 -o /dev/null

     Send data from rmidi/0 to midithru/0:

	   $ midicat -q	rmidi/0	-q midithru/0
