sono-1995aug11: description + notes

sono produces sonograms in Postscript format. The resulting document is formatted as a kind of score that may be read by, for example, composers, students, music scholars and sound technicians. A sonogram is a spectral presentation of sound signals, where time runs alongs the x- axis, frequency along the y-axis, and energy is represented in shades of grey. The sonogram is an ideal form of notation for electroacoustic music, since one may easily see timbral distribution over time. The NoTAM Sono home page has more information, including screen shots.

This product installs its X application default files in /usr/freeware/lib/X11/app-defaults, which is not on the default X search path. There are several ways to extend your X search path. The XUSERFILESEARCHPATH, XAPPLRESDIR, XFILESEARCHPATH, and XENVIRONMENT environment variables all affect resource file loading. The easiest methods are to either create a NetHack symlink in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults or to add code similar to this to your startup scripts:

(The line wrapping above is for clarity; you can remove it and any extra whitespace. If XUSERFILESEARCHPATH is already set we append the new directories separated by a colon, otherwise we simply set it to the new colon-separated list.)
