RE: Controling mpg321 with murgaLua.

You can probably ignore what I posted originally. I misunderstood your question.
It seems that mpg321 has to have some sort of symbiotic relationship with its interface? The documentation mentions remote commands, but doesn't say how to send them.

After looking at mpg321 -R abc, it appears to create some strange interactive shell of some sort. That seems an odd way to remotely control an application through a gui. If you consider xmms, for example, the program runs remotely by sending commandline options with the xmms command. Maybe you'll need to change the default output of murgaLua in order to speak with the mpg321 interface, but that's just a wild guess. This sounds like an interesting project.

Original post:

Use os.execute("mpg321 -R") or io.popen("mpg321 -R")
The latter provides a way to directly grab the output of the command, bypassing the need to read and write a temp file.

I don't know a way to monitor continuous program output while keeping control of the interface. I assume it would require a coroutine, but I know nothing about that. It might work using the new murgaLua timer, though.
