No documentation of -a option
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:21:09 EDT
Description of Problem:
playmidi requires the option "-a" to work on an awe soundcard.
Neither the man page nor /usr/share/doc/playmidi-2.4/*
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man playmidi
3. egrep -e "-a" /usr/share/doc/playmidi-2.4/*
no output from grep ;-)
22:31:05 pictogramme: rpm -q playmidi
See playmidi -h
Mmm. I found that (eventually -- not before getting the option by stracing

fact one place -- the programme should get the info from the same place as the
Fixed in playmidi-2.4-15, thanks!
