autool - audio play/record tool compatible with audiotool SYNOPSYS
audiotool [-audio servername] [-volume percent] [-display displayname] [-geom geometry] filename DESCRIPTION
The autool program is a replacement for the Sun audiotool program used to send audio files to Network Audio System servers. It can be used either by making a symbolic link name audiotool that points to autool and is before the OpenWindows version or by changing the OpenWindows deskset bindings database with the binder(1) command. OPTIONS
The following options may be used with the autool program: -audio servername This option specifies the Network Audio System server on which the files should be played. -volume 0-100 This option specifies the volume at which the data should be played as a percentage of the maximum possible volume. The default is 10 percent. -display displayname This option specifies the X Window System on which the control panel should be displayed. -geom geometry This option specifies the position and size of the control panel. CONFIGURING OPENWINDOWS TO USE AUTOOL
OpenWindows users can configure deskset applications to use autool to play audio files through following steps: 1. Run the deskset configuration program binder. 2. Locate the entry in the scrolling list named audio-file click on it once with the left mouse button. 3. From the Props menu, select the Icon... entry with the right mouse button. 4. Click on the button marked (+) in the lower right corner with the left mouse button. This will expand the window, adding another panel to the right. 5. On the line marked Application in the panel on the right, change ``audiotool'' to ``autool'' (you will need to specify a full path name if you have not installed autool in a directory in your path). The initial volume (which is a percentage relative to the recorded level; the default is 10) can be increased by inserting the ``-v percent'' option between ``autool'' and ``$FILE''. 6. Press the Apply button in the left panel. 7. Back in the main binder window, press the Save button in the upper left corner. 8. Restart any deskset applications such as filemgr to have the updated values take effect. Double clicking in filemgr on file names that end in .snd will now cause autool to invoked. ENVIRONMENT
The following environment variables are used by autool: AUDIOSERVER This variable specifies the default audio server to contact if -audio is not specified on the command line. DISPLAY If AUDIOSERVER is not set, this variable is examined to find the name of the corresponding X Window System display. SEE ALSO

auscope - Network Audio System Protocol Filter SYNOPSIS
auscope [ option ] ... DESCRIPTION
auscope is an audio protocol filter that can be used to view the network packets being sent between an audio application and an audio server. auscope is written in Perl, so you must have Perl installed on your machine in order to run auscope. If your Perl executable is not installed as /usr/local/bin/perl, you should modify the first line of the auscope script to reflect the Perl executable's location. Or, you can invoke auscope as perl auscope [ option ] ... assuming the Perl executable is in your path. To operate, auscope must know the port on which it should listen for audio clients, the name of the desktop machine on which the audio server is running and the port to use to connect to the audio server. Both the output port (server) and input port (client) are automati- cally biased by 8000. The output port defaults to 0 and the input port defaults to 1. ARGUMENTS
-i<input-port> Specify the port that auscope will use to take requests from clients. -o<output-port> Determines the port that auscope will use to connect to the audio server. -h<audio server name> Determines the desktop machine name that auscope will use to find the audio server. -v<print-level> Determines the level of printing which auscope will provide. The print-level can be 0 or 1. The larger numbers provide greater output detail. EXAMPLES
In the following example, mcxterm is the name of the desktop machine running the audio server, which is connected to the TCP/IP network host tcphost. auscope uses the desktop machine with the -h command line option, will listen for client requests on port 8001 and connect to the audio server on port 8000. Ports (file descriptors) on the network host are used to read and write the audio protocol. The audio client auplay will connect to the audio server via the TCP/IP network host tcphost and port 8001: auscope -i1 -o0 -hmcxterm auplay -audio tcp/tcphost:8001 dial.snd In the following example, the auscope verbosity is increased to 1, and the audio client autool will connect to the audio server via the network host tcphost, while displaying its graphical interface on another server labmcx: auscope -i1 -o0 -hmcxterm -v1 autool -audio tcp/tcphost:8001 -display labmcx:0.0 SEE ALSO
