# NAME

dtas-ctl - low-level client for dtas-player

# SYNOPSYS

dtas-ctl [ARGS...]

# DESCRIPTION

dtas-ctl passes command-line arguments as-is to dtas-player.  It is mainly
useful for simple commands such as ("current", "play_pause", "pause", "play",
"rg RGARGS", "seek HH:MM:SS", "skip").

See dtas-player_protocol(7) for a detailed description of the protocol.

# EXAMPLES

display the currently playing track

        $ dtas-ctl current

enqueue a file for playback (dtas-enq(1) is easier to use, here)

        $ dtas-ctl enq /absolute/path/to/file

toggle the play/pause state of the player

        $ dtas-ctl play_pause

change the ReplayGain mode

        $ dtas-ctl rg mode=album_gain
        # "track_gain", "off" may be used, too

seek 5 seconds forward

        $ dtas-ctl seek +5

seek to an absolute position

        $ dtas-ctl seek 1:00

skip to the next track

        $ dtas-ctl skip

To play the output of an arbitrary command (note the quotes) and usage
of $SOXFMT (see dtas-player_protocol(7)).

	$ dtas-ctl enq-cmd 'sox -n $SOXFMT - synth 3 pluck'

# ENVIRONMENT

This defaults to ~/.dtas/player.sock
