failure & success


what I like about xmms is the named pipe (provided by xmms-info) that can be used to read informations about the currently playing track. so I tried to implement a similar feature into randomplay; sometimes success seemed close & sometimes it seemed far away. finally I surrendered - being not able to reproduce phenomena makes debugging meaningless. - I guess I should learn more about named pipes, fork(), zombies, maybe threads, kill signals, and stuff like that.


to make up for the failure with randomplay I created an RSS feed for my movie database. - I'm sure it will be read & syndicated by a great many people :-)
