copyHandle& = _SNDCOPY(handle&)


  • Returns a new handle to the a copy in memory of the sound data referred to by the source handle.
  • No changes to the source handle (such as a volume change) are inherited.
  • The sound data referred to by the handle and its copies are not freed until all of them are closed.
  • In versions prior to build 20170811/60, the sound identified by handle& must have been opened using the "SYNC" capability to use this function.
