NAME
       PulseView - Qt-based LA/scope/MSO GUI for sigrok

SYNOPSIS
       pulseview [OPTIONS] [FILE]

DESCRIPTION
       PulseView  is  a	 cross-platform	 Qt-based  GUI for the sigrok software
       suite for test and measurement equipment	such as	logic  analyzers,  os-
       cilloscopes, MSOs, and more.

OPTIONS
       PulseView has very few command line options, as most configuration ele-
       ments are available from	the GUI	itself.

       If the optional FILE argument is	supplied, PulseView tries to open  the
       specified  file.	 It  has to be in the "libsigrok session" format (.sr)
       unless -I is used to specify the	input file format.

       -l, --loglevel
	      Set the libsigrok	and libsigrokdecode loglevel.  At  the	moment
	      PulseView	 doesn't  support  setting  the	two loglevels indepen-
	      dently. The higher the number, the more  debug  output  will  be
	      printed. Valid loglevels are:

	      0	  None
	      1	  Error
	      2	  Warnings
	      3	  Informational
	      4	  Debug
	      5	  Spew

       -h, -?, --help
	      Show a help text and exit.

       -V, --version
	      Show version information and exit.

       -d, --driver <drivername>
	      Specify the capture device to connect to.	If the --driver	option
	      is not supplied, PulseView attempts to re-connect	 to  the  most
	      recently used device, or auto-detect available devices.

       -D, --dont-scan
	      Usually  PulseView automatically scans all drivers to find suit-
	      able devices during program startup. This	 option	 disables  the
	      auto-scan.  Users	can either specify the --driver	option to pick
	      a	device at startup, or interactively  scan  for	devices	 after
	      PulseView	has finished starting up.

       -i, --input-file	<filename>
	      Load input from a	file. If the --input-format option is not sup-
	      plied, PulseView attempts	to load	the file as a  sigrok  session
	      file.

       -I, --input-format <format>
	      Specifies	the format of the input	file to	be loaded.

       -s, --settings <filename>
	      Load  PulseView  session	setup  to use with the input file. The
	      setup file must be  in  the  "PulseView  session	setup"	format
	      (.pvs).

       -c, --clean
	      Prevents	the  previously	used sessions to be restored from set-
	      tings storage.  This is useful if	you want only a	single session
	      with the file given on the command line instead of restoring all
	      previously used sessions as well.
