Subject: Newbie API questions
From: ds2list (ds2list_at_yahoo.com)
I would like to implement some new features on rockbox, and I am
new to the source code and API, so i was wondering if someone in
the know could answer a few basic questions for me:
1) Given a pathname to an mp3 file, what sequence of function calls
(pseudo-code description is ok) does one need to do in order to
play the file? From what I can see in the code, it builds a
playlist for an entire directory when it plays a file, then
calls mpeg_play() on it. Is this right? Could I build a
playlist for just one file if I wanted to?
2) How are directories and files addressed in the API? Is
it by file/directory name string? I see lots of integers
seeming to represent directories in the code.
Thanks alot! And thanks for the great software!
