NAME
smfsh - SMF shell SYNOPSIS
smfsh [ -V ] [ file ] OPTIONS
-V Print libsmf version and exit. file Load the file. DESCRIPTION
smfsh, an "SMF shell", is an interactive, command-driven frontend to libsmf, useful for modifying MIDI files by hand. It started its life as a debugging aid for libsmf. There are four groups of commands: SMF level, track level, event level, and others. SMF LEVEL COMMANDS
SMF level commands display or change properties of smf (i.e. the MIDI file) as a whole. save file Save a file. If the file name is not given, the last file name is used. Note that this will not ask for confirmation. load file Load a file. If the file name is not given, the last file name is used. Instead of using "load", you can pass the file name on the command line. ppqn new-ppqn Show (if used without parameter) or change PPQN (Pulses Per Quarter Note, aka Division). format new-format Show (if used without parameter) or change format. tempo Show tempo map. Tempo map is computed automatically from the SMF contents - to modify a tempo, just add a Tempo Change event using "add" command. length Show total length of the song. Just like the tempo map, file length is computed from the SMF contents. TRACK LEVEL COMMANDS
Track level commands display or change properties of tracks. SMF may contain one or more tracks. tracks Show the list of tracks in the SMF. track track-number Show details of a track (if called without parameter), or select track with a given number - for example in order to display ("events") the events it contains. trackadd Create new track. trackrm track-number Remove the track. If the track number is not given, this will remove the track currently selected. EVENT LEVEL COMMANDS
Event level commands display or change properties of events. Events are grouped into tracks. Track may contain any number of events, including zero. events Show the list of events in the current track. event event-number Show information about a current event (if used without parameter) or select the event. add time-in-seconds midi-message-as-hex Add new event to the currently selected track. rm event-number Remove the event. If the event number is not given, this will remove the event currently selected. OTHER COMMANDS
There are three commands in the "other" category - "help", "version", and "exit". Their meaning should be self expanatory. smfsh 1.3 21 March 2010 SMFSH(1)

NAME
cdplay - play audio compact disks SYNOPSIS
cdplay [ -a]|[-r] DESCRIPTION
Cdplay is an audio-cdplayer it can be used interactively or non-interactively. With no flags cdplay is used interactively. When used inter- actively cdplay can be either in non-playing or playing mode. In non-playing mode you can select tracks to be played. In playing mode cdplay shows the track-time, remaining track-time, total-time and remaining total-time. Cdplay assumes the drive to be at /dev/cd0. During non-playing mode the following commands are available: cursor-up/down browse through the track-list spacebar add track to the play-list backspace remove a track from the play-list s start playing the tracks in the play-list. When the play-list is empty start playing from the current position in the track-list until the end of the cd p play the track on the current position in the track-list r play all tracks in a random order (shuffle play) e exit cdplay During playing mode the following commands are available: s stop playing, return to non-playing mode spacebar pause/resume current track cursor-up/down skip to next/previous track OPTIONS
When one of these options is used cdplay does everything in the background. -a Play all tracks, cdplay tells the drive to play all tracks and then it immediately returns to the user -r Play all tracks in random order (shuffle play). Cdplay forks of a new process which starts up a track, during that track it sleeps. When the track is finished it wakes up to start the next track and goes to sleep again. The parent process immediately returns to the user. BUGS
Cdplay does not sense if a cd has changed, so don't switch cd's. If you want to play another cd you have to insert the new cd and start cdplay again. AUTHOR
