6 The server process listens on a network socket and accepts connections
7 from para_client or para_audiod. For the connection to succeed the
8 connecting peer must authenticate as one of the users stored in the
9 user table of para_server. Each entry of the user table contains the
10 set of permission bits that are granted to the user. Authenticated
11 users may execute one of the commands below if the set of permission
12 bits of the command is a subset of the permission bits that are
13 granted to the user.

19 aux_info = AFS_READ | AFS_WRITE
20 [description]
21 Each path must be absolute and refer to either an audio file or a
22 directory. In case of a directory, all audio files in that directory
23 are added recursively. Note that the given paths refer to files or
24 directories on the host on which para_server is running.

154 aux_info = VSS_WRITE
155 [description]
156 Reread the config file and the user list file, close and reopen the log
157 file, and ask the afs process to do the same. Sending the HUP signal
158 to the server process has the same effect as running this command.

198 The optional mode argument is either a single character or a word
199 according to the following list.
200
201 short (s). List only the path or basename (last component of the path),
202 depending on whether -p is also given. This listing mode acts as if
203 --listing-mode had not been given.
204
205 long (l). Show detailed information. This is the default if no argument
206 to --listing-mode is supplied.
207
208 verbose (v). Multi-line output, one row per data field stored in the
209 audio file table.
210
211 parser-friendly (p). Like verbose listing mode, but use numerical
212 values for the names of the output fields and prefix each line with
213 a length field.
214
215 mbox (m). Generate output suitable to be viewed with a mail
216 program. One "mail" per matching audio file.
217
218 chunk-table (c). Print path (or basename, depending on whether -p is
219 also given), chunk time and chunk offsets.
220

225 [help]
226 Print only the basename of each matching file and match only the

250 [help]
251 The sort order must be given as an required argument. Like for
252 --listing-mode, this argument may either be a single character or a
253 word, according to the following list.
254
255 path (p). Sort alphabetically by path or basename, depending on
256 whether -b is given. This is the default if --sort is not given.
257
258 score (s). Iterate over the entries of the score table, rather than
259 the audio file table. This sort order implies --admissible, since
260 the score table contains only admissible files.

324 [subcommand next]
325 purpose = close the stream and start to stream the next audio file
326 aux_info = VSS_READ | VSS_WRITE
327 [description]
328 Set the 'N' (next audio file) bit of the vss status flags. This
329 instructs the server to close the current stream, if any. The 'P'
330 (playing) bit is not modified by this command. If it is on, playing
331 continues with the next audio file.
332
333 This command is equivalent to stop if paused, and has no effect
334 if stopped.

337 [subcommand nomore]
338 purpose = stop playing after current audio file
339 aux_info = VSS_READ | VSS_WRITE
340 [description]
341 Set the 'O' (no more) bit of the vss status flags which asks
342 para_server to clear the 'P' (playing) bit after the 'N' (next audio
343 file) bit transitions from off to on (because the end of the current
344 audio file is reached). Use this command instead of stop if you don't
345 like sudden endings.

398 aux_info = AFS_READ | AFS_WRITE
399 [description]
400 The specifier is either 'm' or 'p' to indicate whether a playlist or

414 available, but not all senders support every command.
415
416 help, on, off, add, delete, allow, deny, status.

433 matching the given pattern. Example:
434
435 setatt rock+ punk+ pop- '*foo.mp3'
436
437 sets the 'rock' and the 'punk' attribute and unsets the 'pop' attribute
438 of all files ending with 'foo.mp3'.

479 aux_info = NO_PERMISSION_REQUIRED
480 [description]
481 This used to print the ID, the status and the name of each task,

496 purpose = manipulate the afs information of audio files
497 non-opts-name = pattern...
498 aux_info = AFS_READ | AFS_WRITE
499 [description]
500 This command modifies the afs info structure of all rows of the audio
501 file table whose path matches at least one of the given patters.
502
503 If at least one option is given which takes a number as its argument,
504 only those fields of the afs info structure are updated which
505 correspond to the given options while all other fields stay unmodified.
506
507 If no such option is given, the lastplayed field is set to the current
508 time and the value of the numplayed field is increased by one while
509 all other fields are left unchanged. This mimics what happens when
510 the virtual streaming system selects the file for streaming.
511
512 If the file is admissible for the current mood (or contained in the
513 current playlist), its score is recomputed according to the changed
514 values.

522 [help]
523 The numplayed count of an audio file is the number of times the file
524 was selected for streaming. It is one of the inputs to the scoring
525 function which determines the order in which admissible files are
526 streamed.
527
528 The virtual streaming system increases this number automatically each

537 [help]
538 The lastplayed time of an audio file is the time when the file was
539 last opened for streaming.
540
541 Like the numplayed count, it is an input for the scoring function
542 and is updated automatically by the virtual streaming system.
543
544 The argument must be a number of seconds since the epoch. Example:
545
546 touch -l=$(date +%s) file
547
548 sets the lastplayed time of 'file' to the current time.

553 arg_type = uint32
554 arg_info = required_arg
555 typestr = num
556 [help]
557 The afs info structure of each row of the audio file table contains
558 a slot for the image id of the audio file that corresponds to the
559 row. The image id stored in this slot refers to the key in the image
560 table that identifies the blob.
561
562 When a new audio file is added to the audio file table, its image
563 id starts out as zero, indicating that there is no image associated
564 with the file. Setting the image id to a non-zero number associates
565 the file with a particular blob of the image table, for example the
566 cover art of the album in jpg format.

584 [help]
585 The amplification value of an audio file is a number which is stored
586 in the afs info structure.
587
588 The value determines the scaling factor by which the amplitude of
589 the decoded samples should be multiplied in order to normalize the
590 volume. A value of zero means no amplification, 64 means the amplitude
591 should be multiplied by a factor of two, 128 by three and so on.
