realplayer controls in Linux

hi, i have installed Realplayer on Linux (RH9).

When I launch realplayer from command line with help option (realplay -h), it tells me that I can send commands to a running realplayer using -r option. I can send start play command using this (just give realplay -r abcd.mp3). But I am not able to figure out how to give other commands like Stap, Pause etc. Can somebody help / give pointer to any documentation that helps?

You can't open realplay from CLI. You have to be running a GUI. Why not use the buttons on Real Player to stop, pause etc.

hello, thanks for the reply.

in Linux, I can launch the real player from the CLI. (i did it last week after installing it).

I can use the buttons provided and GUI, but I needed the CLI options so that I could control it by another program..

realplayer does provide CLI options but it does give details..
