Typedef Documentation

typedef struct player_audio_cmd player_audio_cmd_t

Command: tone to emit.

The audio interface accepts commands to produce fixed-frequency tones through /dev/dsp (which is assumed to be associated with a sound card to which a speaker is attached).

typedef struct player_audio_data player_audio_data_t

Data: tones detected.

The audio interface reads the audio stream from /dev/audio (which is assumed to be associated with a sound card connected to a microphone) and performs some analysis on it. PLAYER_AUDIO_PAIRS number of frequency/amplitude pairs are then returned as data.
