NAME
       pacmd - Reconfigure a PulseAudio sound server during runtime

SYNOPSIS
       pacmd

       pacmd --help

       pacmd --version

DESCRIPTION
       This tool can be used to introspect or reconfigure a running PulseAudio
       sound server during runtime. It connects to the sound server and offers
       a  simple live shell that can be used to enter the commands also under-
       stood in the default.pa configuration scripts.

       To exit the live shell, use ctrl+d. Note that the 'exit' command inside
       the shell will tell the PulseAudio daemon itself to shutdown!

       If  any  arguments  are passed on the command line, they will be passed
       into the live shell which will process the command and exit.

OPTIONS
       -h | --help
              Show help.

       --version
              Show version information.
