I'm trying to determine the format of the sound data returned by
/dev/audio and /dev/dsp. How is this data encoded? I know /dev/audio
returns data as though it were an au, but how is that encoded? Is one byte
frequency, and one byte amplitude? I'm especially interested in /dev/dsp's
format. Thanks for any response. :)
