create a sequencer port on the current client

Creates a sequencer port on the current client. The attributes of created port is specified in info argument.

The client field in info argument is overwritten with the current client id. The port id to be created can be specified via snd_seq_port_info_set_port_specified. You can get the created port id by reading the port pointer via snd_seq_port_info_get_port.

Each port has the capability bit-masks to specify the access capability of the port from other clients. The capability bit flags are defined as follows:

Each port has also the type bitmasks defined as follows:

A port may contain specific midi channels, midi voices and synth voices. These values could be zero as default.

Parameters:

seq sequencer handle
port port information for the new port

Returns:

0 on success otherwise a negative error code

query the next matching port

Queries the next matching port on the client specified in info argument. The search begins at the next port specified in port field of info argument. For finding the first port at a certain client, give -1.

If a matching port is found, its attributes are stored on info and function returns zero. Otherwise, a negative error code is returned.

Parameters:
