AUCTL(1)		    General Commands Manual		      AUCTL(1)

NAME
       auctl - control various audio server parameters

SYNOPSYS
       auctl [-audio servername] [-q] [command...]

DESCRIPTION
       The  auctl  program can be used to control various audio	server parame-
       ters.  It is typically used when	connecting up new devices, or  to  set
       user  preferences.   If	no command is specified	on the program command
       line, auctl reads commands from the standard output.  If	 the  standard
       input  and standard output are both attached to a terminal, an interac-
       tive prompt is provided.

OPTIONS
       The following options may be used with auctl:

       -audio servername
	       This option specifies the Network Audio System server on	 which
	       the files should	be played.

       -q      This option indicates that no prompt should be given when read-
	       ing commands from the standard input.

COMMANDS
       The following commands may be used with auctl:

       help    This command prints a list of the commands that may be given.

       set device id gain [=,+,-] percent
	       With =, this command sets the gain on the device	 specified  by
	       id  to the indicated percentage,	or alters it by	the given num-
	       ber of percentage points	if + or	- is used.  If	the  id	 is  a
	       decimal	number	n,  the	nth device returned by the server (see
	       auinfo) is used.	 Otherwise, id should be a hexidecimal	number
	       specifying the resource identifier of the desired device.

       set device id linemode =	low
	       This command sets the linemode of the device specified by id to
	       the lower setting appropriate for microphones.

       set device id linemode =	hi
	       This command sets the linemode of the device specified by id to
	       the higher setting appropriate for CD players.

       list device id gain
	       This command lists the gain of the specified device in the form
	       needed to set it.

       list device id linemode
	       This command lists the line mode	of the specified device	in the
	       form needed to set it.

       list device id
	       This  command lists the gain and	line mode of the specified de-
	       vice.

       quit, exit, or ^D
	       Either of these commands	or an end of file causes  the  program
	       to exit.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
       The following environment variables are used by auctl:

       AUDIOSERVER
	       This  specifies	the name of default audio server to contact if
	       no name is explicitly given on the command line.

       DISPLAY This specifies the name of an  X	 Window	 System	 display  that
	       should  be  assumed  to also have a corresponding Network Audio
	       System server.
