NAME

       roar_vs_stream, roar_vs_new_from_con - Create new VS objects

SYNOPSIS

       #include <roaraudio.h>

       roar_vs_t * roar_vs_new(const char * server, const char * name, int * error);

       roar_vs_t * roar_vs_new_from_con(struct roar_connection * con, int * error);

DESCRIPTION

       These  calls  are  used  to create new VS objects without a yet connected data connection.
       They are only helpful if there you want to share a  control  connection  between  multiple
       streams  (generally  recommended  if using multiple streams to the same server) or need to
       use some extended parts of the VS API. If you look for a easy way to  open  a  stream  see
       roar_vs_new_simple(3) and roar_vs_new_from_file(3).

       roar_vs_new()  opens  a  new  control  connection  to  server  server.   name  is  used as
       application name.

       roar_vs_new_from_con() creates a new VS object from the extsing control connection con.

       VS objects created via roar_vs_new_from_con() will not close  the  control  connection  on
       roar_vs_close(3).

PARAMETERS

       server The server to connect to. NULL for defaults.

       name   The  application  name.  This  should be something the user can use to identify the
              application.  It MUST NOT be the application's binary name or the value of argv[0].

       con    The already existing and open control connection to use.

       error  This is a pointer to a integer used to store the error  value  in  case  of  error.
              This  can be NULL if not used but it is very recommended to use this error value to
              report good error messages to the user.

RETURN VALUE

       On success these calls return a new VS object.  On error, NULL is returned.
