Re: sox - package is broken

Hi Dave,

yes, /dev/dsp seems to be broken.
short wav-files are silent, long ones (> 2sec) are ok (hearable).

I've been able to reproduce this using very short wav files (less than 2
seconds in duration); if I use a longer file then it seems to work OK.
Please could you try again with a longer wav file and report how you get

This may be a Cygwin problem (rather than an issue with sox itself), as
piping the wav file to /dev/dsp has the same result, i.e. short wav files
are not heard.

Cheers, Dave.
