The programming interface is presented as a binary class library through System Object Model (SOM). This class library provides various objects that can be used to play, record, and edit media files. For example, C language bindings to these SOM object methods generally include two additional arguments: the instance pointer and the environment pointer. See "General Programming Information" for more general information.

|This object reads and writes configuration files providing other objects with system and user-configurable data through a well-defined interface. Two files are processed: a system configuration file and a user configuration file, which overrides the system file if there are any conflicts.
