NEWS:
     [29-09-2007] = (thanks to Wayne for his feedback!)
     - added single tasking mode(message port) to the 'SmallYmPlayer' and it is
turned on        by default, it avoids running multiple instances - this feature
can be controlled        with env. variable called 'STSOUNDONETASK'(1 - yes, 0 -
no).

     - new default value for "overloopping" is now 2, 1 was still cropping the  
     tune.

     - moved AHI init call before loading the tune so that you will receive
       the error message(if not okay) immediately, without loading the tune.

     - default mixing frequency is now 17640 Hz(set the same in AHI prefs
       for best quality)

     - binaries are now even smaller due to symbol stripping.

     - 'SmallYmPlayer' has lower stack requirements, 'StackSnoop' reports
        ~68 kilos, so i think that 81920 will be enough, it was 163840.


     [22-07-2007]      - tunes were played not up to their end in
'SmallYmPlayer', fixed, plus you        can control "overloopping" with
'STSOUNDOVL' - by default it is 1, which means        that there is one
additional loop when function that render the sound returns        zero, this
does not quit the program immediately so 'AHI' has a chance to play        this
last buffer. 

     - found out that the build was fpu dependant, there are two builds now,
default        for 040/060 and for anything that is fpuless(000-030).

     - 'SmallYmPlayer' has now possibility to choose 'AHI' music unit, you can
do        that with 'STSOUNDAHIUNIT' - by default it is 1.

     - you can play MIX1 and YMT's on a plain 68020 - with very little cpu
usage,        i think that it can even play nicely on 68000, however you should
decompress        the tunes with 'lha' first.

NOTES:

      - requires 68000+/os2.04+/1 meg+ of memory/AHI/[AUDIO:]
        ;
        NO IXEMUL NEEDED!

      - to be short, i have improved whole package a bit by adding and fixing   
     this and that, here and there...         ;         fixed 'Ym2Wav', fixed
'SmallYmPlayer', fixed lzh decompression,         and lots of tiny other things
in the library, added 'Ym2Aiff' & 'Ym2Pipe'.
        ;
        with 'Ym2Pipe' you can listen through 'AUIDO:' or redirect
        to some 'PIPE:'.
        ;
        btw, i suspect that existing ppc version can not decompress lzh
        transparenty, so can someone try to build these sources for a ppc
        Amiga and let me know if it works?

      - this port allows to set mixing frequency through enviroment variable
        'STSOUNDFREQ', so you are not limited to 44100 Hz only, generally it
        looks like this(default frequency is 17640 Hz):
        ;
        11025 - 17640 Hz  =  should play smoothly on 68030(8 bit).
        17640 - 22050 Hz  =  plays reasonably good on 68040(8/16 bit).
        22050 - 56000 Hz  =  fast cpu required(even in 8 bits!).

      - waveform in 8 bit('STSOUND8BIT') mode can be controlled via environment 
       var 'STSOUNDSIGNED' ex.: ('set STSOUNDSIGNED 0', or 'set STSOUNDSIGNED
1'):         ;         'Ym2Wav'   -  by default gives unsigned data in 8 and
signed in 16 bits.
        'Ym2Aiff'  -  same as above.
        'Ym2Pipe'  -  by default gives signed data in both sample resolutions.
        
      - pcm buffer can be controlled via environment variable 'STSOUNDBUF',
        ex.: ('set STSOUNDBUF 4096'), defaults are as follows:
        ;
        'Ym2Wav'        =  32768 bytes.
        'Ym2Aiff'       =  32768 bytes.
        'Ym2Pipe'       =  4096 bytes, for quick streaming.
        'SmallYmPlayer' =  32768*2 - double buffered

      - YOU SHOULD USE WRAPPERS INSTEAD OF INVOKING PROGRAMS DIRECTLY THIS IS
        BECAUSE STACK USAGE IS REALLY HIGH!
        ;
        i was playing with 'swapstack.o' but this thing is broken, and programs
        affected by this code trash the memory and crash from time to time...

      - did you know? that '.ym's' are 'lzh's', you can decompress them using
'lha'.

      - fyi YM's 2-6 can load cpu really badly(pure emulation) while YMT's 1,2
and         MIX1 tunes not - samples.

      - why does 'Total time' when playing MIX1 tunes is 0? hell, no idea...,
        is there a way to calculate???

      - each binary can dump information only(without playing), this can be
        done by using option '-i' - idea by Lorence Lombardo.

ENV VARS('setenv'-perm. or 'set'-temp.):

      - STSOUNDBUF      (1024 - 32768)  - (32768*4) + 8192 = 139264 bytes       
                                   of stack needed(theoretically)!       -
STSOUNDFREQ     (4000 - 56000)  - adjust mixing frequency       - STSOUNDOVL    
 (1    - 5    )  - so called "overloopping"         [+]       - STSOUNDAHIUNIT 
(0    - 3    )  - choose AHI music unit            [+]       - STSOUNDONETASK
