lircrc - application-specific remotes signals configuration


   lircrc  is the last LIRC configuration point in the flow of events from
   the kernel to the application. It  provides  a  way  to  translate  the
   application-agnostic    events   which   lircd   makes   available   on
   /var/run/lirc/lircd to application-specific strings.   The  translation
   is    invoked    by    LIRC-aware    applications    by    using    the
   <em>lirc_code2char()</em> routine in the <em>lirc_client</em> library.

   The lircrc event mapping is not only mapping from a remote event to  an
   application string. It also supports a variety of functionality such as
   repeat suppression, modes, long keypresses and button sequences.

   The default location for  lircrc  is  ~/.config/lircrc  with  a  global
   fallback  in  /etc/lirc/lircrc. Many applications which uses the lircrc
   translations have private locations for the file.

   The programmatic interface to the lircrc functionality is described  in
   the Client API manual, see below

   The file format is described in the configuration manual, see below.
