NAME

       roarcat, roarmon - RoarAudio sound server base clients

SYNOPSIS

       roarcat [OPTIONS]... [FILE]

       roarmon [OPTIONS]...

DESCRIPTION

       This  are  some  basic clients for RoarAuido. Some more complex are listen in the SEE ALSO
       block.  For controlling roard take a look at roarctl(1). For a simple  Ogg  Vorbis  player
       take a look at roarvorbis(1) (ogg123 supportes RoarAudio via libao plugin).

       roarcat
              Sends raw PCM audio data from a file or stdin (pipe) to the sound server.

       roarmon
              Gets a copy of the audio data the server sends to the soundcard. This is useful for
              streaming to a server like icecast2(1).
