Reading Input From Computer Microphones Can't Post

 
Is there a way to read the input from a computer microphone and print the input to a file. I need to know what the information that carries the sound looks like. (In Detail) Would I need to setup a special Kind of Socket?

Thanks For Any Help,

perlkid

What OS?
You could probably read /dev/dsp or /dev/audio on linux..
view that and you'll get a pretty good view of what the data looks like Smile

Thank You For the reply,

I'm on Red Hat Linux. To read thoses file would I have to ask my admin. to get them for me or can I do it through telnet some how?

Thanks Again, Smile

I think Red Hat uses MAKEDEV to generate the /dev entries, so /dev/dsp is most likely what it generates. You'd have to ask the administrator to give you read access to the /dev/dsp device. By default, I'm sure it's configured read-only for root (*maybe* group sys) ..

Hope this helps,
