NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     aucat - concatenate and play audio files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     aucat [-f device] file ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The aucat utility reads files sequentially, writing them  to
the specified
     device.    By   default,   aucat  plays  audio  through  the
/dev/audio device.
     The file operands are processed in command line order.  If a
Sun .au
     header  is  detected  it  is  skipped over and not copied to
/dev/audio.  Otherwise,
 the entire file is copied to /dev/audio.

     The options are as follows:

     -f device    Specifies an alternate audio device.

     The aucat utility exits 0 on success or >0 if an  error  occurred.
