NAME

       libroar - RoarAudio sound library

       roarvio - RoarAudio virtual IO layer

SYNOPSIS

        #include <roaraudio.h>

        struct roar_vio_calls;

DESCRIPTION

       The  RoarAudio  VIO  interface  is  RoarAudio's IO abstraction layer. It provides basic IO
       functions such as read and write independing on the underlaying IO. For  Example  can  you
       open  a  plain  or  a  gziped file via the VIO layer. After a successful open both objects
       behave the same, libroar takes care about the compression in the gzip case.
