    Question speaker-test issues

    Hello everybody! Although I have been using Ubuntu for a couple of months, I am still a complete noob when it comes to modifying any core files so I thought I would come here first.

    I am currently working on a project that is trying to measure sound pressure levels from various audio sources. As a test, I need something that can produce a chosen frequency of sound for a chosen period of time. I thought speaker-test would work great for this, but there are two problems; although using --help says you can specify the period of the should using -p, the maximum value doesn't get close to the period we need to carry out the test. Is there a way to modify speaker-test so this would be possible?

    Secondly, I am not sure if this is just my laptop's crappy speakers, but when I try and test higher frequencies, my terminal returns the error "Write error: -32,Broken pipe." My friend's desktop did not have this issue.

    Thanks for the help!
