NAME

       roar_simple_stream - Opens a stream to RoarAudio's sound server

SYNOPSIS

       #include <roaraudio.h>

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

DESCRIPTION

       This  creates  a  new  stream  to  RoarAudio.  Normally   you   want   to   use   one   of
       roar_simple_play(3),        roar_simple_monitor(3),        roar_simple_record(3)        or
       roar_simple_filter(3).

       his functions are marked obsolete and will be removed very soon.   Please  upgrade  to  VS
       API. See roar_vs_new_simple(3).

PARAMETERS

       rate, channels, bits, codec, server, name
              For an explanation on these parameters see roar_simple_play(3).

       dir    The direction of the new stream. See below for a list of valid directions.

STREAM DIRECTIONS

       ROAR_DIR_PLAY
              This  stream  directions meens that a player streams data to the server in order to
              play it back.

       ROAR_DIR_RECORD
              This direction is to record audio from the soundcard. This is used if  for  example
              you want to get data from your microphon or line in.

       ROAR_DIR_MONITOR
              This  direction  is  used  to get a copy of what the server sends to the soundcard.
              This can for example be used to  stream  the  fully  mixed  data  to  Icecast  (see
              icecast2(1)).

       ROAR_DIR_FILTER
              This  is  used to crate a filter stream: A filter stream is a stream used to filter
              the output of the sound server by some tool. This can for example be  used  for  an
              software  equalizer.  The filter stream is the only bi-directional stream. You have
              to read some data and write back data of exactly the same size.

       ROAR_DIR_OUTPUT
              This is the type of the stream the server sends  to  the  soundcard.  You  can  not
              create such a stream. It's only listend for completeness.

RETURN VALUE

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