NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     ossaudio - OSS audio emulation

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     OSS Audio Emulation Library (libossaudio, -lossaudio)

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <soundcard.h>

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The ossaudio library provides an emulation of the OSS (Linux) audio

     Use the native interface for new programs and the emulation library only
     for porting programs.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     audio(4), midi(4)

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The ossaudio library first appeared in NetBSD 1.3.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     The emulation uses a #define for ioctl() so some obscure programs can
     fail to compile.

     The emulation is incomplete.

     The emulation only covers ioctl(), there are other differences as well.
     E.g., on a write that would block in non-blocking mode Linux returns
     EINTR whereas NetBSD 1.3 returns EAGAIN.

BSD                            October 16, 1997                            BSD
