SYNOPSIS

ufmcontrol [-hjsv] [-f device] command

DESCRIPTION

The ufmcontrol utility is a program to control a FM radio attached to an USB port. The device is a name such as ufm0 or /dev/ufm1.

If no command is given, then ufmcontrol enters an interactive mode, reading commands from the standard input.

The options are as follows:
-h Help - print usage.
-j Japanese band - set the valid band width to 76 MHz ~ 91 MHz.
-L No Locale - disable I18N suppport.
-s Silent mode - do not print any information or human readable comments.
-v Verbose mode - print as much information as possible.
-V Version - print version information of the program.
-f device Specify a device, such as ufm0 or /dev/ufm1. Both absolute path and relative to /dev filename are possible.

The available commands are listed below. Only as many characters as are required to uniquely identify a command need be specified. The word set can be omitted.
