player serverThe most commonly-used of the Player utilities, player is a TCP server that allows remote access to devices. It is normally executed on-board a robot, and is given a configuration file that maps the robot's hardware to Player devices, which are then accessible to client programs. The situation is essentially the same when running a simulation.
player [-q] [-d <level>] [-p <port>] [-h] <cfgfile>
- -h : Give help info; also lists drivers that were compiled into the server.
- -q : Quiet startup
- -d <level> : Set the debug level, 0-9. 0 is only errors, 1 is errors + warnings, 2 is errors + warnings + diagnostics, higher levels may give more output. Default: 1.
- -p <port> : Establish the default TCP port, which will be assigned to any devices in the configuration file without an explicit port assignment. Default: 6665.
- <cfgfile> : The configuration file to read.
