asysex - A SysEx Utility
========================
Description
-----------
Asysex is a tool specialized in emitting and receiving System Exclusive
(SysEx) MIDI messages. It reads a SysEx message from its standard input
and sends it to a MIDI device, then receives a single SysEx message in
response (if any) and prints it to standard output.
Copying
-------
Asysex is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License,
version 3 or higher. The full license is included in the COPYING file of
the source distribution.
Homepage and contact
--------------------
The project homepage, where release tarballs may be found, is located at
<http://www.incenp.org/dvlpt/asysex.html>. The repository containing the
latest source code is available at <git://git.incenp.org/asysex.git>.

MIDI backends
-------------
Asysex currently supports ALSA and OSS MIDI backends. Please note that
as I only use ALSA, the OSS backend has only been tested against the
ALSA emulation layer for OSS; it *does* work against the emulated OSS,
so I expect it should also work against a real OSS, but I cannot
guarantee that.
The MIDI backend must be selected at configure time with the
`--with-alsa' or (exclusive) `--with-oss' options. There is no default,
so one of these options *must* be used when calling configure. The
selected backend cannot be changed later without recompiling the program
(runtime selection of the MIDI backend may be implemented someday).
