	      will be sent to the first available Bluetooth device.

COMMANDS
       dev    Display local devices

       inq    Inquire  remote  devices.	 For each discovered device, Bluetooth
	      device address, clock offset and class are printed.

       scan   Inquire remote devices. For each discovered device, device  name
	      are printed.

       name <bdaddr>
	      Print  device  name  of  remote  device  with  Bluetooth address
	      bdaddr.

       info <bdaddr>
	      Print device name, version  and  supported  features  of	remote
	      device with Bluetooth address bdaddr.

       spinq  Start periodic inquiry process. No inquiry results are printed.

       epinq  Exit periodic inquiry process.

       cmd <ogf> <ocf> [parameters]
	      Submit  an  arbitrary HCI command to local device.  ogf, ocf and
	      parameters are hexadecimal bytes.

       con    Display active baseband connections

       cc [--role=m|s] [--pkt-type=<ptype>] <bdaddr>
	      Create baseband  connection  to  remote  device  with  Bluetooth
	      address  bdaddr.	 Option --pkt-type specifies a list of allowed
	      packet types.  <ptype>  is  a  comma-separated  list  of	packet
	      types,  where  the possible packet types are DM1, DM3, DM5, DH1,
	      DH3, DH5, HV1, HV2, HV3.	Default is to allow all packet	types.
	      Option  --role  can have value m (do not allow role switch, stay
	      master) or s (allow role switch, become slave if the  peer  asks
	      to become master). Default is m.

       dc <bdaddr> [reason]
	      Delete  baseband	connection  from  remote device with Bluetooth
	      address bdaddr.  The reason can be  one  of  the	Bluetooth  HCI
	      error codes. Default is 19 for user ended connections. The value
	      must be given in decimal.

       sr <bdaddr> <role>
	      Switch role for the baseband connection from the	remote	device
	      to master or slave.

       cpt <bdaddr> <packet types>
	      Change packet types for baseband connection to device with Blue‐
	      tooth address bdaddr.  packet types is a comma-separated list of
	      packet types, where the possible packet types are DM1, DM3, DM5,
	      DH1, DH3, DH5, HV1, HV2, HV3.

       rssi <bdaddr>
	      Display received signal strength information for the  connection
	      to the device with Bluetooth address bdaddr.

       lq <bdaddr>
	      Display link quality for the connection to the device with Blue‐
	      tooth address bdaddr.

       tpl <bdaddr> [type]
	      Display transmit power level for the connection  to  the	device
	      with  Bluetooth  address bdaddr.	The type can be 0 for the cur‐
	      rent transmit power level (which is default) or 1 for the	 maxi‐
	      mum transmit power level.

       afh <bdaddr>

	      Bluetooth address bdaddr.

       lp <bdaddr> [value]
	      With no value, displays link policy settings for the  connection
	      to the device with Bluetooth address bdaddr.  If value is given,
	      sets the link policy settings  for  that	connection  to	value.
	      Possible values are RSWITCH, HOLD, SNIFF and PARK.

       lst <bdaddr> [value]
	      With no value, displays link supervision timeout for the connec‐
	      tion to the device with Bluetooth address bdaddr.	 If  value  is
	      given,  sets the link supervision timeout for that connection to
	      value slots, or to infinite if value is 0.

       auth <bdaddr>
