AUTOOL(1)		    General Commands Manual		     AUTOOL(1)

NAME
       autool -	audio play/record tool compatible with audiotool

SYNOPSYS
       audiotool  [-audio servername] [-volume percent]	[-display displayname]
       [-geom geometry]	 filename

DESCRIPTION
       The autool program is a replacement for the Sun audiotool program  used
       to  send	 audio	files to Network Audio System servers.	It can be used
       either by making	a symbolic link	name audiotool that points  to	autool
       and  is	before	the OpenWindows	version	or by changing the OpenWindows
       deskset bindings	database with the binder(1) command.

OPTIONS
       The following options may be used with the autool program:

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

       -volume 0-100
	       This  option  specifies	the volume at which the	data should be
	       played as a percentage of the maximum possible volume.  The de-
	       fault is	10 percent.

       -display	displayname
	       This  option specifies the X Window System on which the control
	       panel should be displayed.

       -geom geometry
	       This option specifies the position  and	size  of  the  control
	       panel.

CONFIGURING OPENWINDOWS	TO USE AUTOOL
       OpenWindows  users  can configure deskset applications to use autool to
       play audio files	through	following steps:

       1.      Run the deskset configuration program binder.

       2.      Locate the entry	in the scrolling list named  audio-file	 click
	       on it once with the left	mouse button.

       3.      From  the  Props	 menu, select the Icon... entry	with the right
	       mouse button.

       4.      Click on	the button marked (+) in the lower right  corner  with
	       the left	mouse button.  This will expand	the window, adding an-
	       other panel to the right.

       5.      On the line marked Application  in  the	panel  on  the	right,
	       change  ``audiotool'' to	``autool'' (you	will need to specify a
	       full path name if you have not installed	autool in a  directory
	       in your path).  The initial volume (which is a percentage rela-
	       tive to the recorded level; the default is 10) can be increased
	       by  inserting  the ``-v percent'' option	between	``autool'' and
	       ``$FILE''.

       6.      Press the Apply button in the left panel.

       7.      Back in the main	binder window, press the Save  button  in  the
	       upper left corner.

       8.      Restart	any  deskset  applications such	as filemgr to have the
	       updated values take effect.

       Double clicking in filemgr on file names	that  end  in  .snd  will  now
       cause autool to invoked.

ENVIRONMENT
       The following environment variables are used by autool:

       AUDIOSERVER
	       This  variable specifies	the default audio server to contact if
	       -audio is not specified on the command line.

       DISPLAY If AUDIOSERVER is not set, this variable	is  examined  to  find
	       the name	of the corresponding X Window System display.
