NAME
RoarAudio - RoarAudio sound system and package SYNOPSIS
roard [OPTIONS]... DESCRIPTION
RoarAudio is a modern, multi-OS, network transparent sound system. It supports a large amount of features required for home and profes- sional usage. Its main purpose is to connect software (like media players) and devices (like soundcards) as a mid-layer adding features you expect from a modern sound system like software mixing and full network transparency. RoarAudio can also be used to connect multiple software components. An example for such a setup is a common webradio setup where the used playback software is connected to a streaming server in addition to a local soundcard. RoarAudio has special features for such setups like meta data passing. MAIN FEATURES
* fully network transparent. Network support for UNIX Domain Sockets, TCP/IP and DECnet * multiple audio streams per client * Vorbis comments like meta data for each audio stream * support for "legacy" clients via libroaresd, libroararts, libroaryiff * support for PulseAudio and OpenBSD's sndio clients via libroarpulse and libroarsndio * supported by many media players and other sound using applications! * mixing clients at individual levels like an analog mixer * server and client side support for common codecs like Ogg Vorbis, Speex, FLAC and many more * support for 8, 16, 24 and 32 bit per sample. Mixer resolution up to 64 bit * and many more... BUGS

It plays a 5 second middle C (523.2Hz) sine. roarsockconnect This is just a test tool connecting somewhere via roar_socket_connect(3). First the data of stdin is copied to the socket than the data from the socket to stdout. It's a very simlple semi-bi-directional version of netcat(1). GENERAL OPTIONS
