simple loop playback

Hi everybody.

I'm searching for a simple + SMALL wave-editor just to let it play some waves in loop permanently, yep that's all...
- o.k.: no, I`m not totally nerd here is what it is all about:
I need this tool for looping sounds under puppy-linux 4.2.1. on an old IBM ThinkPad (PIII 700, 256MB RAM) so my e-drum-machine doesn't have to manage them anymore.
"Players" cannot loop without breaks/pausing, and the editors I found cannot loop.
For my normal editings I have Audacity and Ardour on the bigger machine (+ Ubuntu).
Under Puppy Audacity's audiodevice cannot be configured, not OSS, nor ALSO nor JACK and its lame with my hardware.
I tried MIXXX - that looked good - but shots down every once-a-while...
I found mhwaveedit - great, that`s it and would be enough ... but it doesn't l o o p ....!

Any idea ? THANKS!

mplayer filename.wav -loop 0
Or right-click a file to add gmplayer as a player, with a custom command:
gmplayer %f -loop 0

thank you, smoker,

at least your tip made me think of working with the mhwaveedits sourcecode, I asked the original developer and he had good answers without the source too. so - mhwaveedit works fine now.

best regards,
