How do you play an mp3 file on plan 9?
mp3dec < sandstorm.mp3 > /dev/audio
@sir wtf that's actually so cool
@sir I wonder if this works on any BSDs
@lanodan lord save me from using a Solaris or BSD system
@lanodan they think they know better than everyone else, when in fact they don't, and it leaks
@lanodan well, at least linux has drivers
@lanodan true, but ramp up on a new arch is pretty easy, whereas drivers for every peripheral ever is much harder
@lanodan I also like neither pkgsrc nor ports
@lanodan I'm not the sort of person who is satisfied with the binary packages
@kurisu on plan 9 every process has a distinct /dev/audio file, which can be provided by a userspace process that handles multiplexing. Every process has its own filesystem, which has shared resources mounted into it explicitly
@sir plan9 owns conceptually
