roarcat, roarmon - RoarAudio sound server base clients
roarcat [OPTIONS]... [FILE] roarmon [OPTIONS]...
This are some basic clients for RoarAuido. Some more complex are listen in the SEE ALSO block. For controlling roard take a look at roarctl(1). For a simple Ogg Vorbis player take a look at roarvorbis(1) (ogg123 supportes RoarAudio via libao plugin). roarcat Sends raw PCM audio data from a file or stdin (pipe) to the sound server. roarmon Gets a copy of the audio data the server sends to the soundcard. This is useful for streaming to a server like icecast2(1).
NOTE: This list is incomplete! In addition to this list all three programs provide compatible options for esdcat, esdmon. You can just replace the "esd" in the name with "roar" or use symlinks. This options are for compatibly only and should not used in new programs. --help Print some help text.
--rate RATE, -R RATE Set server sample rate. --bits BITS, -B BITS Set server bits. --chans CHANNELS, -C CHANNELS Set server channels.
--server SERVER The server to connect to.
Below only the basic environment variables are listend. For a complete list see libroar(7). HOME The users home directory. ROAR_SERVER The address of the listening server. This may be in form of host:port for TCP/IP connections and /path/to/sock for UNIX Domain Sockets or any other supported format. See roartips(7) for a full list. This is the same as the --server option.
There are a lot of bugs...
