Architectures: Classic AMIGAs, FS-UAE, OSX 10.15.7, Linux Mint 21.3.

  MINIMUM Requirements Are:-

  1) Amiga environment:-
       Stock AMIGA 1200 with HDD and 4MB FastRAM.
       Python Version 1.4.0.
          (!!! RECOMMENDED !!! -> 68030-FPU and at least 8MB FastRAM.
          It will run much faster and better however with more FastRAM,
          serious expansion cards, and Python Version 2.0.1).
       FS-UAE on OSX 10.15.7 and Linux Mint 20.3.
       Standard AMIGA OS_3.0.x install or better.
  2) Apple OSX 10.12.x to 10.15.7 and higher using default Python 2.7.x,
     3.5.2. 3.8.x, 3.9.x and 3.10.6, and the default Perl version.
  3) Linux Mint 20.3, Python 2.7.x, 3.8.x and 3.9.x.
  4) Windows 8.1 to 10, Python 2.4.3 to 3.10.6, catered for but it is

  5) It has NOT been tested on WinUAE but it might well work.



  Version 0.50.00: Major version jump; so what's new:
                   (I was half expecting someone to tell me that the Generic
                   function is technically a security risk as anything could
                   be executed, but as PyPlayer will never be used by pros'
                   in a commercial environment then why worry.)

                   As of 08-08-2022:
                   Tested and working under Python 3.11.0rc1, on OSX 10.15.7.

                   1) 'padsp' added to the OSS '/dev/dsp' section.
                   2) Added a function to test for the players used and if
                      none exists EXITS the code completely, SO BE AWARE.
                   3) I can't be arsed with cleaning up the Windows 8.x to 10,
                      and perhaps 11, OSes as there is now a Generic call that
                      you can now use to suit your needs.

  Version 0.02.50: What's new:
                   Added a basic Generic function for expert usage of
                   command line audio players that I am unaware of and the
                   current ones too. it means also that you have a choice of
                   being able to use any of Play16's options to further
                   enhance Play16's capability.
                   It also means that you COULD even use arecord, parec[ord]
                   or any other command line capable recording software of
                   your choice to RECORD your audio. You will need some kind
                   of timeout for this facility however, so be aware!
                   This extra facility is unintentional and untested, so you
                   try it out at you own risk!
                   It allows you to use ANY switches, options, keywords and
                   file extensions of your choice so long as the whole is
                   inside inverted commas as a single string, OR, as a
                   single string variable; make sure you have tested your
                   code first from the command line to ensure that it works.
                   Sound eXchange, SoX, looks like it is not being updated
                   any more, but VideoLAN, VLC, is current, and, certainly
                   being supported.
                   See the 'Generic_In_Linux.png' for playback examples.
                   (Working on the UGLY Windows part at the moment. UGH!)
                   (DLs are now 79 as before the next upload.)

  Version 0.01.00: What's new:
                   1) Now the spawned child plays in the background by
                   2) It has the option of turning this facility OFF and
                      the script or Python command prompt '>>>' waits until
                      the played audio finishes before it can resume.
                   3) If the default 'Error_Beep.wav' is not in the current
                      directory then it will be created 'silently' with the
                      option of a verbose mode.
                   4) Windows 8.1 to 10 is catered for but requires VLC. It
                      is VERY UGLY however. Also VLC works from the command
                      line extremely well where SOX no longer works at all!
                   (DLs have now reached 385 before the next upload as
          and PyPlayer.lha becomes deleted.)

  Version 0.00.30: A taster upload to see how many are interested...
                   (172 DLs inside 13.5 days.)


  Other minimum requirements depending on what you decide to use:-

  Python Version 1.4.0, absolute minimum:-
  AND/OR, for expanded and very highly expanded AMIGAs... <- Recommended! <- Recommended!

  Play16, two versions the lower one includes a 68000 version,
  and both also supports AHI and others if need be but Paula8 is the
  default and the one actually used! <- This is already inside the
  archive of the Play16_v1.9 install.

  No other important dependencies needed.

  If you have DLed PyPlayer before and have 'import'ed it then delete ANY
  and ALL PyPlayer.pyc files so that they can be re-compiled correctly.



  I wanted a very basic Python audio player for AMIGA Python 1.4.0 so I
  decided upon this idea:-
  A basic '.WAV' audio player module for Python Versions 1.4.0 to 2.0.1
  for the AMIGA A1200(HD) platform to Version 3.10.6 for other platforms.
  The limits are 'WAV' files for every platform, plus, a maximum standard
  sample rate of 48000 sps, (actually 56000 sps), and 2 channels maximum
  for the AMIGA ONLY.
  The code seems naive in places but getting things like this to work for
  all types of platforms and Python versions require some degree of naive

  For some platforms there are a multitude of audio formats that can be
  played but this code was primarily intended for the AMIGA A1200(HD) with
  a small amount FasTRAM. It goes without saying that highly expanded AMIGAs
  will probably work better than a stock A1200(HD).
  It looks like people are interested in this so this upload is the next
  stage in developing the idea.

  The code can be either imported as a module or used as a source for a
  main Python program. Read the manual and code for more info.

  Read the PyPlayer.Manual AND code for MUCH MORE info'.
  Read any relevant documentation for the audio players also!

  The *NIX '/dev/dsp' is also catered for BUT it is limited entirely to
  an audio '.RAW' or '.WAV' file that is uncompressed, unsigned integer,
  8000 sps, 1 channel "mono". The default "Error_Beep.wav" WILL work but
  with a momentary click at the start due to the 44 byte header.

  Final NOTES:
  PyPlayer.pyc was/is the imported compiled file from inside
  AMIGA Python Version 1.4.0 to 2.0.1.

  If you have DLed PyPlayer before and have 'import'ed it then delete ANY
  and ALL PyPlayer.pyc files so that they can be re-compiled correctly.





    The Legal Stuff:-

    failure of equipment or data caused in any way by the use of this code.

    There is NO warranty with the use of this software release and


    Testing Evaluation:-

    FS-UAE and Classic AMIGA test conditions were/are running standard
    OS 3.0.x, 4MB FastRAM and using standard ~topaz 8~ fonts throughout.
    (The minimum requirements above ARE required however.)
    A stock AMIGA A1200(HD) can be a little jerky hence the addition of
    FastRAM. It will run much faster and better however with more FastRAM
    and serious expansion cards. 

    I have no idea what strange configuration setups will create so refer
    to the ~The Legal Stuff~ above.
