distmp3 - client for distributed mp3-encoding across multiple hosts on
distmp3 [-p port] [-s datasize] [-d debug] [-df debugfile] remotehost
distmp3 is the client part of distmp3, a utility for distributed
mp3-encoding across multiple hosts on a network.
The client connects to a remote host on port 4600 and a handshake
If the handshake goes well, the client will open the wav-file for
reading and the mp3-file for writing.
The client then starts sending raw data from the wav-file across the
network to the daemon, which sends it back to the client who writes it
down in a file.
Default values are used if none specified, and those defaults are read
The port on remotehost to connect to.
The datachunksize to use when sending data to the distmp3host
If 1 then debugmessages will be printed on stdout, else
If defined debugmessages will be printed to file debugfile
The DNS hostname or IP address of the remote machine running
The local WAV format file to be encoded on remotehost.
The desired local destination for the finished mp3 file. If this
file already exists and is writable, it will be overwritten. If
it is not writable, distmp3 will exit with an error.
