CATEGORY

       Extension

SYNOPSIS

               use SDL;
               use SDLx::Music;

               my $music = SDLx::Music->new;

               #define music data with just a name and file path
               $music->data(
                       fast => 'music/fast.ogg',
                       slow => 'music/slow.ogg',
                       magical => 'music/magic/cake.ogg',
               );

               #define more the long way with a parameter hash
               $music->data(
                       squelch => {
                               file    => 'music/squelch.ogg',
                               loops   => 3,
                               fade_in => 0.5,
                               volume  => 72,
                       }

                       },
               );

               #instead, do it the short way with the help of defaults

               #clobber everything
               $music->clear;

               #specify the class-wide default for file extension

               $music->default->dir('music/');

               $music->data(
                       squelch => {
                               #file defaults to the data name, so the path becomes
                               #'music/squelch.ogg', which is what we wanted
                               loops   => 3,
                               fade_in => 0.5,

                       },
               );

               $music->data_for(
                       'fast',
                       'slow',

DESCRIPTION

       This class provides a powerful and convenient interface to SDL::Mixer::Music. The main
       goal was to make music code neater and clearer. Among the things that help this, this
       class provides class-wide and object-wide defaults and it automatically shares duplicate
       use of the same files.

       The following document is intended for reference. For a more beginner-friendly description
       of this class, see chapter X of the SDL Perl Manual (when it is written).

       Please note: do not mix use of this class with SDL::Mixer::Music if you want everything to
       work right.

METHODS

   new
               SDLx::Music->new;
               #Option arguments showing the default parameters
               SDLx::Music->new( freq => 44100, format => SDL::Audio::AUDIO_S16SYS, channels => 2, chunksize => 4096);

       Creates the new music object. Inits audio with a call to SDLx::Mixer::init, if it isn't
       already (if you want more precise control over what is initialized, make sure you call
       SDLx::Mixer::init before you call this method). Creates an empty default data object for
       object-wide defaults. If arguments are supplied, calls "data" with them to set up any
       initial data objects. Returns the new music object.

   data
               $music->data;
               $music->data( $name );
               $music->data( $data );
               $music->data( %args );

       With no arguments: returns a reference to the data hash. This hash has data names as keys
       and the associated data objects as values.

       With a name: creates the data name if it doesn't already exist. Does this with a call to
       SDLx::Music::Data-new|SDLx::Music::Data/new> with "name =" $name> and puts that new object
       in the data hash under the key of $name. Returns the data object for that name.

       With a hash of arguments: for each pair, and returns a  SDLx::Music::Data. Returns $music.

   data_for
               $music->data_for( @names_or_data_objects );

       Calls "data" repeatedly, passing it one element of the list at a time, to initialise
       multiple empty names and/or add data objects. Returns $music.

   has_data
               $music->has_data;
               $music->has_data( $name );
               $music->has_data( $data );

       Without arguments: returns how many data objects the class has.

       With a name: returns the data object for $name. If there is no data object for $name it is
       not created and undef is returned instead.

       With a data object: does a (slowish) reverse of the data hash to see if the data object
       belongs to $music. Returns it or undef.

   default
               $music->default;
               SDLx::Music->default;

       Returns the default data object belonging to $music (created in "new"), or to the class.
       See SDLx::Music::Data for information on how defaults work.

   load
               $music->load;
               $music->load( @names_or_data_objects );
               SDLx::Music->load( @data_objects );

       Without arguments: for every data object belonging to $music, if the data object doesn't
       already have a loaded file, loads the file named by dir, file and ext if it hasn't been
       loaded already. Sets the data object's loaded parameter to this. Two or more objects that
       use the same file will use the same loaded file. Reference counting is respected, so if
       two data objects use the same loaded file it will be removed from memory only after both
       are destroyed. Returns <$music>.

       With arguments: does the same, but only for the names or data objects in the list. If
       there isn't a data object for any name, it will be created.

   unload
               $music->unload;
               $music->unload( @names_or_data_objects );
               SDLx::Music->unload( @data_objects );

       Without arguments: clears the loaded parameter for all of the data objects in $music. The
       loaded file is removed from memory if it loses its last reference to it. Returns <$music>.

       With arguments: does the same, but only for the names or data objects in the list. Doesn't
       create a data object for a name that doesn't exist.

   clear
               $music->clear;
               $music->clear( @names );

       Without arguments: empties $music's data hash of all of its objects. The objects will be
       destroyed only if the last reference to them is removed, and no parameters will be cleared
       if this is not the case. Returns $music.

       With arguments: does the same, but only deletes the values of the data hash for the names
       in the list.

   real_clear
               $music->real_clear;
               $music->real_clear( @names_or_data_objects );
               SDLx::Music->real_clear( @data_objects );

       The full, brute force version of "clear".

       Without arguments: empties out the parameters of every data object in $music (including
       "unload"ing them) and then removes them from the data hash. This may not remove the
       objects from memory if there are still remaining references to them, but it is the closest
       thing to it. Returns $music.

       With arguments: does the same, but only clears out the names or data objects in the list.

   play
               $music_or_class->play;
               $music->play( $name, $params );
               $music_or_class->play( $data, %params );

       Without arguments: resumes any paused music. Returns the object or class.

       With arguments: plays the sound found in $music's $name, or in $data (depending on which
       is specified). "load"s it if it needs to be loaded (which in turn creates the name if it
       needs to be created). The %params are all optional and, if defined, are used instead of
       the values returned by the data object's parameter methods. The accepted parameters here
       are:

       loops
           Plays the music file "loops" times. If "loops" is 0, loops it infinitely.

       fade_in
           Fades the music in for its first "fade_in" milliseconds, if "fade_in" is defined.

       vol Sets the music volume to "vol".

       vol_portion
           Multiplies the "vol" by "vol_portion" (values from 0 to 1 are encouraged) before
           setting the volume.

       pos Sets the music position to "pos" if "pos" is defined.

       Returns the object or class.

   pause
               $music_or_class->pause;

       Pauses any playing music. Returns the object or class.

   stop
               $music_or_class->stop;

       Stops any playing music. Returns the object or class.

   last_played
               my $last_played = $music_or_class->last_played;

       Returns the data object that was "play"ed last.

   playing
               my $playing = $music->playing;

       If there is something playing, returns the data object that was "play"ed last. Otherwise,
       returns undef.

   paused
       If there is something paused, returns the data object that was "play"ed last. Otherwise,
       returns undef.

   fading
       If there is something fading, returns the data object that was "play"ed last. Otherwise,
       returns undef.

   volume
               my $volume = $music_or_class->volume;
               $music_or_class->volume( $volume );

       Without arguments: returns the current music volume

       With arguments: Sets the music volume to $volume. Returns the object or class.

   fade_out
               $music_or_class->fade_out( $fade_out );

       Fades the music out for its next "fade_in" milliseconds. Returns the object or class.

   rewind
               $music_or_class->rewind;

       Rewinds the music to its start. Returns the object or class.

   pos
               $music_or_class->pos( $pos );

       Sets the music position to $pos milliseconds. It does different things for different file
       types, so see SDL::Mixer::Music::set_music_position for details. Note that this method
       divides $pos by 1000 to pass it to that function, which uses seconds. Returns the object
       or class.
