Using the test utilities

Updated: May 06, 2022

The test and demo tools are command-line utilities that let you enter commands in a QNX Neutrino terminal to automate common media tasks. This design saves you from having to link in client-side libraries to integrate your prototypes with multimedia services.

You can display a list of supported options for each tool with the use system command, as shown in the following example for mmcli:
% use mmcli

mmcli [options] [cmdfile]...

Options:
 -i DLL [options] -- load interface DLL
 -l log_file
 -D name=value  -- define a global variable
 -h file        -- save command history to that file
 -H             -- save command history to "cli.history"
 -L             -- display time as hh:mm:ss instead of seconds since start
 -v             -- increase verbosity of CLI and all loaded modules
