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).
