OSSAUDIO(3)             NetBSD Library Functions Manual            OSSAUDIO(3)

NAME
     ossaudio -- OSS audio emulation

LIBRARY
     OSS Audio Emulation Library (libossaudio, -lossaudio)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <soundcard.h>

DESCRIPTION
     The ossaudio library provides an emulation of the OSS (Linux) audio
     interface.

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

SEE ALSO
     audio(4), midi(4)

HISTORY
     The ossaudio library first appeared in NetBSD 1.3.

BUGS
     The emulation uses a #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 EAGAIN.

NetBSD 5.0.1                   October 16, 1997                   NetBSD 5.0.1
