      /opt/audio/bin/send_sound [-format_switch] [-server system]
	   [-loop number] [-pri priority] [-srate rate] [-prate rate] [-

      This command plays an audio file. send_sound is the command used when
      you double-click an audio file from the HP VUE File Manager. The file
      begins playing, according to the settings of the Audio Control Panel.

      -format_switch is one these formats:

			  au	    Sun file format

			  snd	    NeXT file format

			  wav	    Microsoft RIFF Waveform file format

			  u	    MuLaw format

			  al	    ALaw

			  l16	    linear 16-bit format

			  lo8	    offset (unsigned) linear 8-bit format

			  l8	    linear 8-bit format

		     If you omit the filename with this option, send_sound
		     plays the audio data from stdin.

      -server system plays the file on the output of an audio server
		     identified by system which is either a system name or a
		     TCP/IP address.

      -loop number   plays the file the number of times you supply.  Note
		     that you cannot use this option if the source is stdin;
		     a filename is required.

      -pri priority  plays file with the priority you supply, either urgent,
		     hi, normal, or lo.

      -srate rate    sets the sample rate of the source audio.

      -prate rate    plays the audio file at the sampling rate you enter.

      -stereo	     plays a stereo file.  This option is needed only for a
		     raw data file with stereo data.
