**************************************************

        SVGAFFT spectrum analyzer
        for Linux

        0.1 alpha

**************************************************

This is the first alpha release of a spectrum analyzer for Linux.
It uses the /dev/dsp device and currently only supports 8-bit
resolution on any card although 16-bit cards still work better in
this mode (better freq. response).  It's display is something
akin to a high-end spectrum analyzer with falling peaks.

*** Needed to run
-----------------
Currently this only runs under Linux I believe, but eventually an
X Windows version should be available that is more portable.  The
binary requires svgalib [and a compatible card], a Linux sound
driver compatible card with a valid dsp device, and a
math-coprocessor (preferably a 486dx/33 or higher).

*** Needed to compile
---------------------
To compile the sources, g++ is needed as well as a Fortran
compiler for the fft routines.  The f77 script with f2c will work
fine.

*** Availability
----------------
The archive will include a binary (it's not too big) and should
be available sometime this week 12/25/94 on sunsite in the
/pub/Linux/apps/sound directory.  This only the first release and
as I have time there are plans for major improvements including a
version for X Windows.

*** Copyrights & Disclaimers
----------------------------
Everything but the FFTs (Fortran from netlib) are under GPL
copyright by the author.
