2.5. artsplay

The artsplay command is a simple utility to play a sound file. It accepts a single argument corresponding to the name of a sound file which is sent to the sound server to be played. The sound file can be any common sound file type such as wav or au. This utility is good for testing that the sound server is working. By running two commands in parallel or in rapid succession you can demonstrate how the sound servers mixes more than one sound source.
