NAME ^

pacmd - Compatability notes

Functionality ^

Here is a breakdown of the functionality of pacmd(1).

Description ^

PulseAudio provides a CLI interface called pacmd. This lists the pacmd commands indexed by functionality. Because PulseAudio provides an object oriented interface to Pulse Audio, you needn't specify the index argument in any of these: these methods are called on the respective objects which hold the index (or in the case of PulseAudio::Module 'name') information.

PulseAudio::Backend::Utilties functionality

All of the functional is performed by the PulseAudio::Backend::Utilities role.
