For ALSA
--------

Initial HOWTO's:

http://www.suse.de/~mana/alsa090_howto.html
http://equalarea.com/paul/alsa-audio.html

Reference manual for the PCM API:

http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/alsa-lib/pcm.html#pcm

Equivalents exist there for the MIDI API and others.

For JACK
--------

* the example clients directory contain sample code for
many different things. JACK is such a simple API
(no hardware configuration or format negotiation)
that these examples are enough to get many people
started without any further information.

* the reference manual is at:

http://jackit.sourceforge.net/docs/reference/index.html

>Where is the equivalent for ALSA? Until it exists, we

you're free to continue doing what you want but your software will not
interoperate with other audio software, it will not work without
card-specific hacks on various high-end audio interfaces, and at some
point in the not very distant future, it will rely on ALSA's OSS
emulation to run.
