       roartips - Tips for RoarAudio users

SYNOPSIS

        roard [OPTIONS...] ...

        roarclient [OPTIONS...] ...

DESCRIPTION

       This  manpage  lists  some  tips  for  intermedia  to advanced users of
       RoarAudio.

CONTROLLING ROARD

       RoarAudio supports a lot of things you can change  on  the  fly.   This
       includes the volume for each stream as you may allready noticed: If you
       cange the volume within a player only this  stream  is  changed,  other
       streams  keep  there  loudness.  There a a lot other things that can be
       changed on the fly.  To do this there is a tool called roarctl(1).  You
       may  want  to  play around a bit with it. A good start are to try those
       two commands:
        roarctl --help
        roarctl allinfo

       The later one will show you all information current  available  of  the
       server  it self, the clients and the streams. This may include a lot of
       information.

SERVER ADDRESS

       There a serverel types of server addresses based on the  protocol  used
       to communicate.  This lists the corrently implemented types in order of
       importance:

       /path/to/sock
              Path to UNIX Domain Socket.  Example:
               /tmp/roar

       host, host:port
              This is used for connections over TCP/IP.  If  port  is  omitted
              the default port is used.  Examples:
               audio.homeserver.local
               localhost:7564

       node::, node::object, ::object, ::
              This  is  the  way to specify a DECnet connection to node node's
              object object. Both may be omitted to use defaults. Default node
              name is local hosts node name.  Examples:
               mynode::
               ::roar
               yournode::yourroard

       +fork  This starts a new roard for every roar_connect(3).  This is used
              internaly by the lib to emulate EsounD's fallback.

ENVIRONMENT

       ROAR_SERVER
              This varibale contains  the  default  server  address.  If  some
              client does not allow a user to set a server address or to set a
              default value this one come into play. Examples:
               ROAR_SERVER=some.host
               ROAR_SERVER=another.host:port
               ROAR_SERVER=node::
               ROAR_SERVER=/tmp/roar
