tmsf-to-integer

Arguments: track minute second frame

Converts the four values specifying the track, minute, second, and frame to a single integer suitable to be used by an MCI device whose time format is :tmsf.

For finer control over device operation, various optional keyword arguments are provided by the methods. For example, to play the first minute of the third track on the cd:

(mci-device-set-time-format cd :tmsf)
(mci-play cd :from (tmsf-to-integer 3 0 0 0)
             :to (tmsf-to-integer 3 1 0 0)

The above code first tells the device to use the track-minute-second-frame (:tmsf) time format for describing its current location, and then tells the CD to play from "track 3 minute 0" to "track 3 minute 1". (The function tmsf-to-integer is required because there are various time formats that use different numbers of components.) To determine the current position of the CD device while it is playing, use:

(multiple-value-setq (track minute second frame)
  (integer-to-tmsf (mci-device-current-position cd)))
