Adding the missing documentation for `module-filter-heuristics` and `module-filter-apply`.
Most of the documentation was made based on the Victor Gaydov's article (https://gavv.github.io/blog/pulseaudio-under-the-hood/#autoloading-filters) This also fixes the PulseAudio bug 96804 (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=96804) Signed-off-by: Nandor Han <nandor....@ge.com> --- .../PulseAudio/Documentation/User/Modules.mdwn | 33 ++++++++++++++++++++++ 1 file changed, 33 insertions(+) diff --git a/Software/PulseAudio/Documentation/User/Modules.mdwn b/Software/PulseAudio/Documentation/User/Modules.mdwn index 75d5706..354b011 100644 --- a/Software/PulseAudio/Documentation/User/Modules.mdwn +++ b/Software/PulseAudio/Documentation/User/Modules.mdwn @@ -948,6 +948,39 @@ This is a compatibility module for libesd based autospawning of PulseAudio.
