I'm sorry but I am not worthy to make your acquaintance.

I'm having a pretty good week, to be honest. Looks possible I'll
be credited for testing some code to enable SteelSeries SRW-S1
racing wheels in future Linux kernels - and now I find you've
kindly written something for me. And it works.

Yes. No complaints, but I already have libsndfile and co, so all
dependencies were met. Plot produced an output channel in qjackctl
and it plays.

Instantly. I can use it so naturally, by mouse, that I want for
nothing more, except -

The other channel output (of course). Lower view area to track play,
although the way I can just move up to the upper section and quickly
get the play head in view again - is fine really. I'm quite surprised
there's so much detail from the chunk file. It's just enough for the
entire file view, but a little more would be good in the lower section.
Or maybe closer inspection of an area could be a secondary feature.
Perhaps only when 'superzoom' is engaged a more detailed visualisation
is derived from the area around the current play head position.
Reduce did one of my 1.3GB files in about 3 seconds with a resulting
size of about 1.3MB.

They are very clear. Thank you.
I don't see any high CPU while playing. Far from it in fact,
compared to similar display in Wine, although I think that
may have been more to do with how Wine does sound...
23% kwin and 14% Xorg if I drag plot's window around my
desktop frantically while playing (as a reference point).
6% and 4% respectively playing normally. Xorg drops to 5%
when plot is stopped. (i5 CPU). All by 'top' so not accurate.

Famous names really. So many fine libs...

Everything is there. Status bar area info is good and resize-ability
isn't essential, although, if possible a scale option for the whole
main window is a must for a generally available fixed size program
window. It's all too small for squintless operation (for me) as is.
My 'monitor' is a 32" Tv at 1920x1080 at 96dpi (forced).

Of course. 64b here too. Maybe a fellow with 32b could test?
Thanks a million for this Cédric, and I hope you can find the
time to carry on with it a bit. I think it could develop into
something which very many people could find useful.
With both output channels working I'm sure it'll be my default
