NAME

   padsp - PulseAudio OSS Wrapper

SYNOPSIS

   padsp [options] PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS ...]

   padsp -h

DESCRIPTION

   padsp  starts  the  specified  program  and redirects its access to OSS
   compatible  audio  devices  (/dev/dsp  and  auxiliary  devices)  to   a
   PulseAudio sound server.

   padsp  uses the $LD_PRELOAD environment variable that is interpreted by
   ld.so(8) and thus does not work for SUID binaries and statically  built
   executables.

   Equivalent  to  using padsp is starting an application with $LD_PRELOAD
   set to libpulsedsp.so
