in reply to heavy perl

UPDATE: I read a bit more of the docs for xaudio and went back and forth with that and perltoot when i got lost, and I'm getting it:) I have a really crude "thing" that plays, stops and even seeks through a file (mp3) Thanks again, very very much all, I probably would have given up in frustration without the push in the right direction. Now I can keep plugging away at this and get something good going:) Miker
