I´m also interested in this - so let´s start implementing this !

I´m working on a real-time-filter application (for my guitar...) and i 
hat to learn how ill oss is ...

i was thinking about writing a little lib which does all these ioctl
calls for me...

if we´re planning to implement wav recording and playing there are some
thinks to plan :

how should the data be read or written ?	stream or blocks ?
do we want to support different audio formats ?	(e.g. pcm, ulaw, mpeg?)

	perhaps someone has a soundcard which can play mp3s (or even record)
	(also some could implement mpeg video support ...)

i´m really new to sdl (i´ve only some parts of the docs and nothing more
so a little bit advice would be nice, but in general i´ve got much
interest in
working on such a project .


lets go to another world ... oberon
