snd_pcm_channel_info()

Get information about a PCM channel's current capabilities

Synopsis:

#include <sys/asoundlib.h>

int snd_pcm_channel_info(
       snd_pcm_t *handle, 
       snd_pcm_channel_info_t *info );

Arguments:

handle
The handle for the PCM device, which you must have opened by calling snd_pcm_open() or snd_pcm_open_preferred().
info
A pointer to a snd_pcm_channel_info_t structure that snd_pcm_channel_info() fills with information about the PCM channel.

Before calling this function, set the info structure's channel member to specify the direction. This function sets all the other members.

Library:

libasound.so

Description:

The snd_pcm_channel_info() function fills the info structure with the current capabilities of the PCM channel selected by handle.


Note: This function and the plugin-aware version, snd_pcm_plugin_info(), get a dynamic "snapshot" of the system's current capabilities, which can shrink and grow as subchannels are allocated and freed. They're similar to snd_ctl_pcm_channel_info(), which gets information about the complete capabilities of the system.

Returns:

Zero on success, or a negative error code.

Errors:

-EINVAL
Invalid handle.

Classification:

QNX Neutrino
