Description Grigor Iliev 2005-05-24 21:30:27 CEST
The following categories returns -1 instead of "NONE" when they are not set. 
The following categories are set to -1 but they are not specified in LSCP draft, so 
not sure about them. 
btw INSTRUMENT_NAME also is not specified in LSCP and return "NONE"

Comment 2 Christian Schoenebeck 2005-05-24 22:14:14 CEST
I will postpone this after I got the release packaged and out. Because it might 
break compatibility with liblscp and qsampler. 
Comment 3 Rui Nuno Capela 2005-05-25 23:54:14 CEST
Altough it might not conform to current LSCP spec, the AUDIO_OUTPUT_DEVICE and 
MIDI_INPUT_DEVICE fields of the GET CHANNEL INFO command result set are 
assumed to be integers on liblscp.  
The proposed change will surely break liblscp (0.2.9) and qsampler (0.1.0) 
behavior, as reading atoi("NONE") leads to a device number zero (0), which is 
a valid device-id and not minus-one (-1), which is not. 
However, the point is taken, and should be addressed in near term. 
Comment 4 Christian Schoenebeck 2008-12-02 22:19:55 CET
What should we do with this issue? I guess there's no point in modifying the 
implementation anymore, since it would introduce the mentioned backward 
compatibility problems.

Should we just update the LSCP specs regarding the mentioned lack of 
clearification and mark this report as resolved?
Comment 5 Grigor Iliev 2008-12-03 12:16:18 CET
ok, I'm fine with that.
Comment 6 Christian Schoenebeck 2008-12-10 23:16:58 CET
Ok, fixed the LSCP sepcs as suggested.
