NAME

       rplay - play, pause, continue, and stop sounds

SYNOPSIS

       rplay [options] [sound ...]

DESCRIPTION

       rplay is client that communicates with rplayd to play, pause, continue,
       and stop sounds using both the RPLAY and RPTP protocols.   Sound  files
       can  be  played  by rplayd directly if available on the local system or
       sounds can be sent over the network using UDP or  TCP/IP.   rplay  will
       attempt  to  determine  whether  or not the server has the sound before
       using the network.

OPTIONS

       -b BYTES, --buffer-size=BYTES
              Use of a buffer size of BYTES when  playing  sounds  using  RPTP
              flows.  The default is 8K.

       -c, --continue
              Continue sounds.

       -n N, --count=N
              Number of times to play the sound, default = 1.

       -N N, --list-count=N
              Number of times to play all the sounds, default = 1.

       --list-name=NAME
              Name  this  list NAME.  rplayd appends sounds with the same NAME
              into the same sound list -- it plays them sequentially.

       --help Display helpful information.

       -h HOST, --host=HOST, --hosts=HOST
              Specify the rplay host, default = localhost.

       -i INFO, --info=INFO
              Audio information for a sound file.  This option is intended  to
              be  used when sounds are read from standard input.  INFO must be
              of the form:
                  ‘format,sample-rate,bits,channels,byte-order,offset’
              Examples: ulaw,8000,8,1,big-endian,0
                        gsm,8000  Shorthand  info  is provided for Sun’s audio
              devices using the following  options:  --info-amd,  --info-dbri,
              --info-cs4231.  There’s also: --info-ulaw and --info-gsm.

       -p, --pause
              Pause sounds.

       --port=PORT
              Use PORT instead of the default RPLAY/UDP or RPTP/TCP port.

       -P N, --priority=N
              Play sounds at priority N (0 <= N <= 255), default = 0.

       -r, --random
              Randomly choose one of the given sounds.

       --reset
              Tell the server to reset itself.

       --rplay, --RPLAY
              Force the use of the RPLAY protocol.  The default protocol to be
              used is determined by checking whether or  not  the  server  has
              local access to the specified sounds.  RPLAY is used when sounds
              are accessible, otherwise RPTP  and  possibly  flows  are  used.
              RPLAY  will  also  be  used  when  sound accessibility cannot be
              determined.

       --rptp, --RPTP
              Force the use of the RPTP  protocol.   See  ‘--rplay’  for  more
              information about protocols.

       -R N, --sample-rate=N
              Play sounds at sample rate N, default = 0.

       -s, --stop
              Stop sounds.

       --version
              Print the rplay version and exit.

       -v N, --volume=N
              Play sounds at volume N (0 <= N <= 255), default = 127.
