       rplay - play, pause, continue, and stop sounds

       rplay [options] [sound ...]

       rplay is	client that communicates with rplayd to	play, pause, continue,
       and stop	sounds using both the RPLAY and	RPTP protocols.	  Sound	 files
       can  be	played	by rplayd directly if available	on the local system or
       sounds can be sent over the network using UDP or	 TCP/IP.   rplay  will
       attempt to determine whether or not the server has the sound before us-
       ing the network.

       -b BYTES, --buffer-size=BYTES
	      Use of a buffer size of BYTES when  playing  sounds  using  RPTP
	      flows.  The default is 8K.

       -c, --continue
	      Continue sounds.

       -n N, --count=N
	      Number of	times to play the sound, default = 1.

       -N N, --list-count=N
	      Number of	times to play all the sounds, default =	1.

	      Name  this  list NAME.  rplayd appends sounds with the same NAME
	      into the same sound list -- it plays them	sequentially.

       --help Display helpful information.

       -h HOST,	--host=HOST, --hosts=HOST
	      Specify the rplay	host, default =	localhost.

       -i INFO,	--info=INFO
	      Audio information	for a sound file.  This	option is intended  to
	      be  used when sounds are read from standard input.  INFO must be
	      of the form:
		  `format,sample-rate,bits,channels,byte-order,offset'	 Exam-
	      ples: ulaw,8000,8,1,big-endian,0
			gsm,8000  Shorthand  info  is provided for Sun's audio
	      devices using the	following  options:  --info-amd,  --info-dbri,
	      --info-cs4231.  There's also: --info-ulaw	and --info-gsm.

       -p, --pause
	      Pause sounds.

	      Use PORT instead of the default RPLAY/UDP	or RPTP/TCP port.

       -P N, --priority=N
	      Play sounds at priority N	(0 <= N	<= 255), default = 0.

       -r, --random
	      Randomly choose one of the given sounds.

	      Tell the server to reset itself.

       --rplay,	--RPLAY
	      Force the	use of the RPLAY protocol.  The	default	protocol to be
	      used is determined by checking whether or	not the	server has lo-
	      cal  access  to the specified sounds.  RPLAY is used when	sounds
	      are accessible, otherwise	RPTP  and  possibly  flows  are	 used.
	      RPLAY  will  also	be used	when sound accessibility cannot	be de-

       --rptp, --RPTP
	      Force the	use of the RPTP	protocol.  See `--rplay' for more  in-
	      formation	about protocols.

       -R N, --sample-rate=N
	      Play sounds at sample rate N, default = 0.

       -s, --stop
	      Stop sounds.

	      Print the	rplay version and exit.

       -v N, --volume=N
	      Play sounds at volume N (0 <= N <= 255), default = 127.
