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

NAME

     ossaudio - OSS audio emulation

LIBRARY

     -lossaudio

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)

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 OpenBSD returns EAGAIN.
