NAME
       padsp - PulseAudio OSS Wrapper

SYNOPSIS
       padsp [options] PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS ...]

       padsp -h

DESCRIPTION
       padsp starts the specified program and redirects its access to OSS com-
       patible 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

OPTIONS
       -h | --help
              Show help.

       -s SERVER
              Set the PulseAudio server to connect to.

       -n NAME
              The client application name that shall be passed to  the  server
              when connecting.

       -m NAME
              The stream name that shall be passed to the server when creating
              a stream.

       -M     Disable /dev/mixer emulation.

       -S     Disable /dev/sndstat emulation.

       -D     Disable /dev/dsp emulation.

       -d     Enable debug output.
