When I do this:
cat file.au > /dev/audio
I only get the first few seconds of the file. Can someone let
me know what was decided about this problem a few weeks ago?
I've uploaded "au-play.tar.z" to tsx-11.mit.edu where it should eventually
end up in the /pub/linux/ALPHA directory.
It plays Sun-style audio files ("*.au") through the internal speaker.
No sound-card is needed, and it won't use it even if you've got one. <shrug>
One thing I forgot to mention in the README:
YOU MAY HAVE TO CHANGE THE "DELAY" CONSTANT IN "au-play.c".
This code is *very* hardware-dependant, since it uses <gag> delay loops.
I have it set for my whimpy 386s/20, but it's easily changed. Don't try to
optimize ("cc -O...") the compilation, since that would remove the delays.
