NAME

       libroar - RoarAudio sound library

       roarvio - RoarAudio virtual IO layer

SYNOPSIS

        #include <roaraudio.h>

        struct roar_vio_calls;

DESCRIPTION

       The  RoarAudio  VIO  interface  is RoarAudio's IO abstraction layer. It
       provides basic IO functions such as read and write independing  on  the
       underlaying  IO.  For Example can you open a plain or a gziped file via
       the VIO layer. After a successful open both objects  behave  the  same,
       libroar takes care about the compression in the gzip case.

IMPORTANT FUNCTIONS

       There are several important functions. This is a small list of the most
       important ones.

       Opening
              roar_vio_open_file(3),                      roar_vio_open_fh(3),
              roar_vio_open_stdio(3),                   roar_vio_open_dstr(3),
              roar_vio_open_proto(3).

              While there are a lot functions important for opening files  the
              most  important  one is roar_vio_open_dstr(3). It opens a stream
              based on URLs that can point to local files or files  on  remote
              machines. It also can handle compression and encryption.

       Closing
              roar_vio_close(3), roar_vio_shutdown(3)

       Reading and writing
              roar_vio_read(3), roar_vio_write(3)

       Seeking and positioning
              roar_vio_lseek(3)

       Non-Blocking and Asyncron IO
              roar_vio_nonblock(3), roar_vio_sync(3), roar_vio_select(3)
