Audio Recorder software with sound detection???


I was wondering if anyone knows of a software package (command line, not GUI) that will record audio via OSS (/dev/dsp) only when it detects sound - i.e. starting a new file every time sound is detected?

.... Detect periods of silence and start and stop processing based on it
