radio - console radio application
radio [ options ]
radio is a interactive, ncurses-bases console radio application.
-h print a short help text.
-d enable debug output.
-q quit after processing the cmd line options, don't enter interactive ncurses mode.
Only useful together with other options for obvious reasons ...
-m mute radio.
tune the specified radio frequency (and unmute the radio).
-c dev specify radio device (default is /dev/radio).
-s Do a scan for radio stations.
-S Same as above + write a radio.fmmap with the signal for every frequency. You can
get a graph for it with gnuplot (plot "radio.fmmap" w lin).
-i Scan, write a initial ~/.radio file to stdout and quit. So you can create a config
file where you only have to fill in the correct station names later this way:
"radio -i > ~/.radio". See below for the config file syntax.
radio picks up station names and present stations from a config file. It can parse kradio
(KDE radio app) config files, therefore it first tries the usual KDE config file location:
~/.kde/share/config/kradiorc. Failing that, radio tries ~/.radio (which makes things a bit
easier for people who don't use kradio).
The format looks like this:
# KDE Config File
The [Buttons] section can have up to eight entries. That are the present stations, they
get mapped to F1-F8. The [Stations] section maps frequencies to station names. The fre-
quencies in both sections are specified in Hz.
ESC,Q,E mute and exit.
up/down inc/dec frequency
pgup/pgdown next/previous station. This one uses the
stations from the config file by default.
When started with the -s option these keys
will cycle througth the stations found during
F1-F8, 1-8 preset buttons.
