       irpty - pseudo tty driver


       irpty [options] config_file -- program [args ...]


       irpty  connects to lircd to receive infrared codes and converts them to
       key strokes. E.g. type irpty ~/.lircrc -- workbone to control  the  CD-
       player  program  workbone.  Of  course  you  will  have  to  create  an
       appropriate config file for this purpose first. The config string  will
       be  passed  to  the  desired  application. Note that you can use escape
       sequences to specify non printable  characters.  Have  a  look  at  the
       .lircrc file format description for details.
