|-s SERVER||communicate with esound running at SERVER|
|-b||read/write 8 bit sample data|
|-m||read/write mono data|
|-r RATE||use a sampling rate of RATE|
options: -s server = communicate with esound running at server -b = 8 bit unsigned char -m = mono -r rate = sample rate of rate Hz.
options for esdsample and esdloop default to 16 bit signed short, stereo, 44.1kHz
