NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     aiff2aifc - convert an AIFF file to an AIFF-C file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     aiff2aifc [-verbose] infile.aiff outfile.aifc

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     aiff2aiffc	is a command-line program which	reads an AIFF digital audio
     input file, and copies the	header information and sample data to an
     AIFF-C digital audio output file.

     The output	file will contain copies of all	the AIFF chunks	in the
     original input file. The chunks may not appear in exactly the same	order
     as	in the original	file. The sample data in the AIFF-C output file	will
     not be compressed.

     If	the input AIFF file parses correctly, and the output file is written
     with no errors, aiff2aifc returns 0. If there is an error,	aiff2aifc
     returns 1.

     If	invoked	with no	arguments, aiff2aifc displays help.

     If	the verbose option is specified, aiff2aifc periodically	prints
     messages as sample	data is	copied from the	input file to the output file.

     The AIFF and AIFF-C file format specifications are	published by Apple
     Computer Inc.
