NAME

       roar_simple_play,  roar_simple_monitor,  roar_simple_record,  roar_simple_filter  - Simple
       playback, monetoring, recording or filtering via RoarAudio

SYNOPSIS

       #include <roaraudio.h>

       int roar_simple_play(int rate, int channels, int bits, int codec, char *  server,  char  *
       name);

       int roar_simple_monitor(int rate, int channels, int bits, int codec, char * server, char *
       name);

       int roar_simple_record(int rate, int channels, int bits, int codec, char * server, char  *
       name);

       int  roar_simple_filter(int rate, int channels, int bits, int codec, char * server, char *
       name);

DESCRIPTION

       Open a connection to the roard(1) and creates  a  new  stream  for  playback,  monetoring,
       recording  or  filtering.   After  you  are  done  you  need  to  close the connection via
       roar_simple_close(3).  In case you just don't do anything with the stream the server  will
       kick your connection, or, in case of playback warns the user about underruns.

       Those  functions  was  removed  in  version  1.0beta0-pr0.   Please upgrade to VS API. See
       roar_vs_new_simple(3).

PARAMETERS

       rate   The sample rate of the stream.

       channels
              The nummber of channels in the stream.

       bits   The number of bits per sample of the stream.  Commen values are 8 and 16.

       codec  The Codec of the data you stream to the server.  This has nothing to do with  codec
              of  the  file  you  are  playing back or encoding.  Default (ROAR_CODEC_DEFAULT) is
              ROAR_CODEC_PCM_S_BE for signed PCM in big endian.

       server The name of the server. A value of NULL  (common  case)  is  used  to  try  default
              locations.

       name   The name of the process opening this stream to be listend in the servers meta data.
              Should normally be the name of the  player  without  any  path  or  filename  being
              played.  If NULL an internal default is used.

NOTES ON FILTER STREAMS

       Filtering  streams  should  not expected to work with different audio data than the server
       works with.  You should get the values via roar_server_oinfo(3) before opening the stream.

RETURN VALUE

       On success these calls return a filehandle for the stream.  On error, -1 is returned.

EXAMPLES

       Examples of these calls are the tools roarcat(1), roarmon(1), roarrec(1) and  roarfilt(1).
       Just look at there code. They aren't that complex.
