OSSAUDIO(3) OpenBSD Programmer's Manual OSSAUDIO(3)NAMEossaudio - OSS audio emulation
The ossaudio library provides an emulation of the OSS (Linux) audio
Use the native interface for new programs and the emulation library only
for porting programs.
The ossaudio library first appeared in NetBSD 1.3.
The emulation uses a #define for ioctl() so some obscure programs can
fail to compile.
The emulation is incomplete.
The emulation only covers ioctl(), there are other differences as well.
E.g., on a write that would block in non-blocking mode Linux returns
EINTR whereas OpenBSD returns EAGAIN.
