When I want to play a vector from Octave I run this little script to
call PLAY in the shell, reading a named pipe, and write to it.

function toca(SS)
        system("play -r44100 -tsw -c1 som&");
        som = fopen("som", "w");
        fwrite (som, SS, "short");
You can call play from the command line in an infinite loop also, for
example... It doesn't work cleanly, but it's not bad for me to work this

I don't  think  there is a better way to do things also! :) I don't like
to see the huge programs people sometimes use to do this... What do they
do after all!?

Of course, if you are using windows it may be difficult to do this.
