Debug PipeWire Config parsing

SYNOPSIS

pw-config [options] paths

pw-config [options] list [SECTION]

pw-config [options] merge SECTION

DESCRIPTION

List config paths and config sections and display the parsed output.

This tool can be used to get an overview of the config file that will be parsed by the PipeWire server and clients.

COMMON OPTIONS

-h | --help
Show help.
--version
Show version information.
-n | --name=NAME
Config Name (default 'pipewire.conf')
-p | --prefix=PREFIX
Config Prefix (default '')
-L | --no-newline
Omit newlines after values
-r | --recurse
Reformat config sections recursively
-N | --no-colors
Disable color output
-C | -color[=WHEN]
whether to enable color support. WHEN is never, always, or auto

LISTING PATHS

Specify the paths command. It will display all the config files that will be parsed and in what order.

LISTING CONFIG SECTIONS

Specify the list command with an optional SECTION to list the configuration fragments used for SECTION. Without a SECTION, all sections will be listed.

Use the -r options to reformat the sections.

MERGING A CONFIG SECTION

With the merge option and a SECTION, pw-config will merge all config files into a merged config section and dump the results. This will be the section used by the client or server.

Use the -r options to reformat the sections.
