    C++ program to play sound on Mac OS X

    Hi, I am trying to write a simple program in C++ and I would really appreciate any help.

    Essentially I want the program to play a wav file, using whatever player the computer normally uses. The most promising information I've come across, however, involves PlaySound() and #include<windows.h>, which isn't very useful, as I'm using a Mac. Also I thought there might exist some kind of more general command that isn't platform specific.

    Any ideas?
