Yes, it would really be nice, here's a way out though it's a bit more
complicated, I'm afraid.
- Get ecalength: http://www.colba.net/~observer/progstuff/ecalength.c
- Compile it as said in the header and make sure it's somewhere in
- Now simply create a shell script alike to this.
if [ -f $1 ]; then
ecasound -i:$1 -o:/dev/dsp -t:`ecalength -s $1` -tl
You just have to finetune the command there, or you can even make it
so that the script will pass its arguments to ecasound...
That's a bit more complicated than if you could just do it from ecasound
but, oh well, it works...
