Print sensor data to the console.
playerprint prints out sensor data to the console. It is useful mainly for verifying that a device is working during the setup or debugging process. If you want to visualize data, try playerv. If you want to log data to a file, try the writelog driver.
playerprint is installed alongside player in $prefix/bin, so if player is in your PATH, then playerprint should also be. Command-line usage is:
$ playerprint [-r <rate>] [-h <host>] [-p <port>] [-i <index>] <device>
Where the options are:
- -h <host>: connect to Player on this host (default: localhost)
- -p <port>: connect to Player on this TCP port (default: 6665)
- -r <rate>: request data update at <rate> in Hz (default: 10Hz)
- -i <index>: the index of the device (default: 0)
$ playerprint -p 7000 laser
playerprint can print out data for the following kinds of devices:
