       WildMidi_GetOutput - retrieve raw audio data




       #include <wildmidi_lib.h>

       int  WildMidi_GetOutput  (midi *handle, char *buffer, unsigned long int


       Places size bytes of audio data from a  handle,  previously  opened  by
       WildMidi_Open(3) or WildMidi_OpenBuffer(3), into a buffer pointer to by

       buffer must be atleast size bytes, with size being a multiple of  4  as
       the data is stored in 16bit interleaved stereo format.

       handle The   indentifier   obtained  from  opening  a  midi  file  with
              WildMidi_Open(3) or WildMidi_OpenBuffer(3)

       buffer The location supplied by the calling program  where  libWildMidi
              is to store the audio data.

       size   The size of the buffer in bytes. Since libWildMidi processes the
              audio in 16bit interleaved stereo format, this value needs to be
              a multiple of 4.


       Returns  -1  on error and an error message sent to stderr, 0 when there
       is no more audio data, otherwise the number  of  bytes  of  audio  data
       writen to buffer.

       NOTE: if the return value is less than the size you gave, this does not
       denote an error, it simply means the lib reached the end  of  the  midi
       before it could fill the buffer.
