       rplay - play, pause, continue, and stop sounds


       rplay [options] [sound ...]


       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


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

       -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.

              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:
                        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.

              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.

              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

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

       -s, --stop
              Stop sounds.

              Print the rplay version and exit.

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