OSSAUDIO(3)               NetBSD Programmer's Manual               OSSAUDIO(3)

NAME
     ossaudio - OSS audio emulation

SYNOPSIS
     #include <soundcard.h>

DESCRIPTION
     The ossaudio library provides an emulation of the OSS (Linux) audio in-
     terface.

     Use the native interface for new programs and the emulation library only
     for porting programs.

SEE ALSO
     audio(4)

BUGS
     The emulation uses an #define for ioctl() so some obscure programs can
     fail to compile.

     The emulation is incomplete.

     The emulation only covers ioctl(), there are other differences as well.
     E.g., on a write that would block in non-blocking mode Linux returns
     EINTR whereas NetBSD 1.3 returns EWOULDBLOCK.

HISTORY
     The ossaudio library first appeared in NetBSD 1.3.

NetBSD                         October 16, 1997                              1
