NAME
       padsp - PulseAudio OSS Wrapper

SYNOPSIS
       padsp [options] PROGRAM [ARGUMENTS ...]

       padsp -h

DESCRIPTION
       padsp starts the specified program and redirects its access to OSS
       compatible audio devices (/dev/dsp and auxiliary devices) to a
       PulseAudio sound server.

       padsp uses the $LD_PRELOAD environment variable that is interpreted by
       ld.so(8) and thus does not work for SUID binaries and statically built
       executables.

       Equivalent to using padsp is starting an application with $LD_PRELOAD
       set to libpulsedsp.so

       -n NAME

              when connecting.

       -m NAME
              The stream name that shall be passed to the server when creating
              a stream.

       -M     Disable /dev/mixer emulation.

       -S     Disable /dev/sndstat emulation.
