NAME
       esdcompat - PulseAudio ESD wrapper script

SYNOPSIS
       esdcompat [options]

       esdcompat --help

       esdcompat --version

DESCRIPTION
       esdcompat is a compatibility script that takes the same arguments as the
       ESD sound daemon esd(1), but uses them to start a the PulseAudio sound
       server with the appropriate parameters. It is required to make PulseAudio
       a drop-in replacement for esd, i.e. it can be used to make gnome-
       session(1) start up PulseAudio instead of esd.

       It is recommended to make esd a symbolic link to this script.

OPTIONS
       -h | --help
              Show help.

       -tcp | -promiscuous | -d | -b | -r | -as | -unix | -public | -terminate |
       -nobeeps | -trust | -port | -bind
              These options understood by the original esd are ignored by
              esdcompat.

       -spawnpid | -spawnfd
              These internally used options understood by the original esd are
              properly handled by esdcompat, however are not to be used
              manually.
