Implementation details

The following constraints are imposed by the implementation environment:

  1. AsTeR currently uses only digitized sounds. The non-speech space is therefore discrete.
  2. Sparc audio allows only one channel of output, since there is only one sound chip.

The current implementation of non-speech audio uses the Lucid multitasking facility. It also uses the Lucid extensions to Common Lisp for interfacing with existing UNIX utilities and programs written in C.
