evemu-device, evemu-play, evemu-event - create a virtual input device and replay
an event sequence
evemu-play /dev/input/eventX < event-sequence
evemu-event /dev/input/eventX [--sync] --type <type> --code <code> --value <value>
evemu-device creates a virtual input device based on the description-file. This
description is usually created by evemu-describe(1). evemu-device then creates
a new input device with uinput and prints the name and the device file to
evemu-play replays the event sequence given on stdin through the input device.
The event sequence must be in the form created by evemu-record(1). If the
argument is a file containing a recording, evemu-play creates the device and
prompts the user for an interactive replay of the events.
evemu-event plays exactly one event with the current time. If --sync
given, evemu-event generates an EV_SYN
event after the event. The event
type and code may be specified as the numerical value or the symbolic name
evemu-device must be able to write to the uinput device node, and evemu-play
must be able to write to the device node specified; in most cases this means
it must be run as root.
