NAME

   pacmd - Reconfigure a PulseAudio sound server during runtime

SYNOPSIS

   pacmd

   pacmd --help

   pacmd --version

DESCRIPTION

   This tool can be used to introspect or reconfigure a running PulseAudio
   sound server during runtime. It connects to the sound server and offers
   a  simple  live  shell  that  can  be  used  to enter the commands also
   understood in the default.pa configuration scripts.

   To exit the live shell, use ctrl+d. Note that the 'exit' command inside
   the shell will tell the PulseAudio daemon itself to shutdown!

   If  any  arguments  are passed on the command line, they will be passed
   into the live shell which will process the command and exit.

OPTIONS

   -h | --help
          Show help.

   --version
          Show version information.
