Wuzzup My linux buddies. I'm a proud new member of the Linux Society, since my newly aquired job has me ssh'd into customers machines all day. Anyways, I have a windows machine and a redhat machine that I have on a lan. My question is this, how would I execute an audio file from a shell prompt? I'm also a newbie to Perl programming, and the new script idea I have will require me to open several audio files when called upon. So I just need to know how to play the damn things from the shell!
I'm a newbie to linux/shell sessions, so please don't beat me bloody for asking a dumb question like this! Thanks in advance guys!

Awesome thanks! So if I put them in mp3 format madplay can play them? But here's a good question, say I have to play several audio files very quickly back to back, is this going to just play the file or is it going to launch something to play the file.
Hopefully I asked that without sounding like a dummy
madplay is just like xmms or winamp, minus the pretty gui, that's all. Try it, i am playing my mp3 with it now. The will play one after another as you have them placed in your directory, and you can do fast forwards, shuffle etc.
madplay -z *
madplay will play your mp3 in the directory randomly, if you want them to play sequentially, just madplay *, that will do.
As long as we're talking about linux sound options, is there an alarm clock program out there that will play my mp3's to wake me up at 6 in the morning? Preferably with gentle wake? I've looked around a bit, but I"ll the ones I've found are both windows and pay-to-play...
Actually guys what I'm doing is creating a program that converts my text into my voice. So I am recording all the combinations of the english language, like "a" and "ah" for a, and ssss and Ssshh for s and sh. Anyways it's just an exercise I'm doing.... I have it all worked out in my head, and my buddy told me just to call on "play". If you do a "man play" you can see it's function.
