hpi_shell(1) An openhpi sample application that allows a user to interactively perform a number of HPI operations.


hpi_shell [-D nn] [-N host[:port]] [-C <cfgfile>] [-e] [-f <file>] [-X] [-h]
hpi_shell [--domain=nn] [--host=host[:port]] [--cfgfile=file] [--events] [--cmdfile=filename] [--debug] [--help]


hpi_shell reads commands and performs HPI operations based on those commands. This allows it to exercise HPI-managed hardware and do manual operations on that hardware.

Once in hpi_shell, use the ``help'' command for a list of commands, or ``help command'' for details on a particular command.

If no domain or host is selected, ohparam uses the default domain as specified in the openhpiclient.conf file.


Help Options:

  -h, --help                   Show help options

Application Options:

-f filename, --cmdfile=filename
Execute command file
-e, --events
Show short events, discover after subscribe
-D nn, --domain=nn
Select domain id nn
-X, --debug
Display debug messages
-N "host[:port]", --host="host[:port]"
Open session to the domain served by the daemon at the specified URL (host:port). This option overrides the OPENHPI_DAEMON_HOST and OPENHPI_DAEMON_PORT environment variables. If host contains ':' (for example IPv6 address) then enclose it in square brackets. For example: ``[::1]'' or ``[::1]:4743''.
-C "file", --cfgfile="file"
Use passed file as client configuration file. This option overrides the OPENHPICLIENT_CONF environment variable.
