get_audio_stream_buffer(3alleg4) Allegro manual get_audio_stream_buffer(3alleg4)



NAME
       get_audio_stream_buffer - Tells you if you need to fill the audiostream
       or not. Allegro game programming library.

SYNOPSIS
       #include <allegro.h>


       void *get_audio_stream_buffer(AUDIOSTREAM *stream);

DESCRIPTION
       You must call this function at regular intervals while an audio stream is
       playing, to provide the next buffer of sample data (the smaller the
       stream buffer size, the more often it must be called). This function
       should not be called from a timer handler. Example:

          void *mem_chunk;
          ...
          while (TRUE) {
             ...
             mem_chunk = get_audio_stream_buffer(buffer);
             if (mem_chunk != NULL) {
                /* Refill the stream buffer. */
             }
          }

RETURN VALUE
       If it returns NULL, the stream is still playing the previous lot of data,
       so you don't need to do anything. If it returns a value, that is the
       location of the next buffer to be played, and you should load the
       appropriate number of samples (however many you specified when creating
       the stream) to that address, for example using an fread() from a disk
       file.  After filling the buffer with data, call
       free_audio_stream_buffer() to indicate that the new data is now valid.
