 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      /opt/audio/bin/send_sound [-format_switch] [-server system]
           [-loop number] [-pri priority] [-srate rate] [-prate rate] [-

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      This command plays an audio file. send_sound is the command used when
      you double-click an audio file from the HP VUE File Manager. The file
      begins playing, according to the settings of the Audio Control Panel.

      -format_switch is one these formats:

                          au        Sun file format

                          snd       NeXT file format

                          wav       Microsoft RIFF Waveform file format

                          u         MuLaw format

                          al        ALaw

                          l16       linear 16-bit format

                          lo8       offset (unsigned) linear 8-bit format

                          l8        linear 8-bit format

                     If you omit the filename with this option, send_sound
                     plays the audio data from stdin.

      -server system plays the file on the output of an audio server
                     identified by system which is either a system name or a
                     TCP/IP address.

      -loop number   plays the file the number of times you supply.  Note
                     that you cannot use this option if the source is stdin;
                     a filename is required.

      -pri priority  plays file with the priority you supply, either urgent,
                     hi, normal, or lo.

      -srate rate    sets the sample rate of the source audio.

      -prate rate    plays the audio file at the sampling rate you enter.

      -stereo        plays a stereo file.  This option is needed only for a
                     raw data file with stereo data.
