NAME

       voice_set_playmode  -  Adjusts  the  loop  status  of  the  specified  voice. Allegro game
       programming library.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <allegro.h>

       void voice_set_playmode(int voice, int playmode);

DESCRIPTION

       Adjusts the loop status of the specified voice. This  can  be  done  while  the  voice  is
       playing,  so  you  can  start  a  sample in looped mode (having set the loop start and end
       positions to the appropriate values), and then clear the loop flag when you  want  to  end
       the  sound, which will cause it to continue past the loop end, play the subsequent part of
       the sample, and finish in the normal way. The mode parameter is a bitfield containing  the
       following values:

       PLAYMODE_PLAY

       Plays the sample a single time. This is the default if you don't set the loop flag.

       PLAYMODE_LOOP

       Loops repeatedly through the sample, jumping back to the loop start position upon reaching
       the loop end.

       PLAYMODE_FORWARD

       Plays the sample from beginning to end. This is the default if you don't set the  backward
       flag.

       PLAYMODE_BACKWARD

       Reverses  the  direction of the sample. If you combine this with the loop flag, the sample
       jumps to the loop end position upon reaching the loop  start  (ie.  you  do  not  need  to
       reverse the loop start and end values when you play the sample in reverse).

       PLAYMODE_BIDIR

       When  used  in  combination with the loop flag, causes the sample to change direction each
       time it reaches one of the loop points, so it alternates between playing forwards  and  in
       reverse.
