xmode2(1) shows the pulse/space length of infrared signals

Other Alias

mode2, smode2


xmode2 [options]


The main purpose of these programs is to check operation of your home-brew LIRC receiver hardware and to see the IR waveform of the remote controller without an expensive oscilloscope. Very useful for debugging. Of course this program won't work with hardware that decodes the signals itself like e.g. TV cards or the Irman.

xmode2 is based on smode2 by Sinkovics Zoltan. It is just a conversion from svga to X with some basic support for resizing. The only differences are that the --mode option enables an alternative display mode and that xmode2 can read and visualise mode2 output from stdin.
