Bluetooth LE command line tools icon

Several Bluetooth LE utilities (blepair, blegatt) require providing bluetooth device as a parameter. You can specify either:

Bluetooth device aliases are stored in the file named "bt_aliases.txt" in the current (working) directory. This file is a simple text file that associates Bluetooth Addresses with aliases, one line per Bluetooth Address. For each device a single line should be present with the following information:
       BD_ADDR alias [optional comments...]
Fields are separated by any number of blanks and/or tab characters. Lines starting with a "#" are comments and are ignored.

       # Example bt_aliases.txt file
       # Sensor tags
       00:00:11:00:00:11  tag1  
       00:00:11:00:00:22  tag2       
       # Other devices
       00:00:11:22:33:44  nordic
