-Author: Casper Wilstrup (cwi@unispeed.dk)
-This package contains wrappers for accessing the ALSA api from Python. It
-is currently fairly complete for PCM devices. My next goal is to have
-complete mixer supports as well. MIDI sequencer support is low on my
-priority list, but volunteers are welcome.
-If you find bugs in the wrappers please notify me on email. Please
-don't send bug reports regarding ALSA specifically. There are several
-bugs in this api, and those should be reported to the ALSA team - not
-This software is licensed under the PSF license - the same one used
-by the majority of the python distribution. Basically you can use it
-for anything you wish (even commercial purposes). There is no warranty
-Note: the wrappers link with the alsasound library alsa (from the alsa-lib
-package). Verify that this is installed by looking for /usr/lib/libasound.so
-before building. The libasound development files are also neccesary. On debian
-and derivatives, this is achieved by installing the alsalib-dev package.
-Naturally you also need to use a kernel with proper ALSA
-support. This is the default in Linux kernel 2.6 and later. If you are using
-kernel version 2.4 you may need to install the ALSA patches yourself - although
-most distributions ship with ALSA kernels.
-To install, execute the following:
- $ python setup.py build
-And then as root:
- # python setup.py install
-Using the API
-There is a reasonably usefull API documentation included in the module
-documentation, which can be found in the doc subdirectory of the source
-There are also three example programs included with the source:
-'playbacktest.py' which plays back raw sound data read from
-'recordtest.py' which captures sound from the microphone at writes
-it raw to stdout.
-'mixertest.py' which can be used to manipulate the mixers
