Returns handle to a named audio stream.

HSTREAM GetStream(
  const char *name,
  int resgroup = 0


Audio stream name.
Resource group identificator.

Return value

If successful, returns handle to the stream. Otherwise returns 0.


You could use the name defined in the resource script or just a plain file name, either absolute or relative to the application folder or resource package root.

If the stream hasn't been loaded yet, it will be loaded. Otherwise handle to the existing stream will be returned.

The resgroup parameter is only used if you specify plain file name. When loading resources defined in resource script, resgroup is taken from the script. Use the value passed here with Purge to free the resource. If =0 or omitted - no specific group will be assigned to the recource.
