  The /dev/audio interface was created for the older 4D/20 platform
  with 8-bit audio. The actual file /dev/audio remains on
  Ind{y,igo2,igo}.

  The sole interface to audio on recent SGI machines is the Audio
  Library and the underlying driver(s).

  The program 'playulaw' in the 'radio' package (ftp.cwi.nl) will play
  u-law data piped from standard input. Also, the radio binaries are
  available at http://www.ibd.nrc.ca/~sgi. (Thanks to Walter Roberson
