audioplayer, audioread and audiodevinfo has been merged to default with cset and made some further improvements since then.

These new functions and classes will be part of the 4.0 release so I'll close this report because this patch isn't needed anymore.

Yes, we have much better and more Matlab-compatible audio handling in progress. It will be merged into a future release of Octave, either 4.0 or 4.2.

This trivial patch is self-explanatory.

We need better handling of sound files though, preferably without system() calls nor redirections to "/dev/audio".
