    The backgammon program gnubg currently uses the QuickTime framework to play .wav files. Since this framework is 32-bit only, I can't compile a 64-bit binary (and still have sounds). I'd like to revise the code in sound.c to use a 64-bit framework that would provide a similar functionality.

    Any suggestions/guidance would be much appreciated. I've searched for sample code to follow, but haven't found any. Thanks.

    I haven't tried anything yet. I'm seeking general suggestions from Mac programmers about what might be a proper approach to investigate. The program is written in C, so I need something with a C API.

    I can build gnubg fine as a 32 bit application, but that means I need to build 32-bit (or universal) versions of all the libraries it uses (quite a few). Not really a problem, but it seems like the right long-term solution is to figure out how to transition gnubg away from the now old QuickTime framework.

    Thanks for the link, by the way.
