NAME
       pasuspender - Temporarily suspend PulseAudio

SYNOPSIS
       pasuspender [options] -- PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS ...]

       pasuspender --help

       pasuspender --version

DESCRIPTION
       pasuspender is a tool that can be used to tell a local PulseAudio sound
       server to temporarily suspend access to the  audio  devices,  to  allow
       other  applications  access  them  directly.  pasuspender  will suspend
       access to the audio devices, fork a child process, and when  the  child
       process terminates, resume access again.

       Make sure to include -- in your pasuspender command line before passing
       the subprocess command line (as  shown  above).  Otherwise  pasuspender
       itself  might end up interpreting the command line switches and options
       you intended to pass to the subprocess.

OPTIONS
       -h | --help
              Show help.

       --version
              Show version information.

       -s | --server=SERVER
              Specify the sound server to connect to.
