Roadmap ------- The COPYING file contains a copy of the GPL described above. NEWS and ChangeLog describe differences between versions. Description ----------- aylet plays music files in the `.ay' format. These files are essentially wrappers around bits of Z80 code which play music on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128's sound hardware - either the beeper, or (eponymously) the AY-3-8912 sound chip. Files using the Amstrad CPC ports are also supported. `aylet' has a curses-based interface, and `xaylet' has an X-based one. One source of `.ay' files playable with aylet/xaylet is "Project AY" on the World of Spectrum website: http://www.worldofspectrum.org/ Installation ------------ You'll need an ANSI C compiler. `gcc' is fine - so should most other compilers be, these days. If you're running Linux, the Makefile should be ok; if not, you might want to check it. After doing that (or not :-)), you should do `make' (or `make aylet' if you don't have GTK+ installed), then (as root) `make install'. Once it's installed, don't forget to read the man page for further documentation. Contacting me ------------- You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Share and enjoy! -Rus.
