Can anyone tell me what formats /dev/dsp, /dev/dsp56k,
/dev/audio, etc. expect? It seems that I can copy
a WAV format file directly to /dev/dsp and get recognizable
sound. I wonder just what format they actually expect.
/dev/audio used to accept Âµ-law encoding, /dev/dsp accepts raw pcm as
configured via ioctl. The device doesn't evaluate any WAV header.
Thanks! So, if I want to use sox, I can specify the output to be
/dev/dsp and raw, and the input format to be whatever corresponds.
Oppose globalization and One World Governments like the UN.
