aifc2aiff - convert an AIFF-C file to an AIFF file
aifc2aiff [-verbose] infile.aifc outfile.aiff
aiff2aiffc is a command-line program which reads an AIFF-C digital audio
input file, and copies the header information and sample data to an AIFF
The output file contain copies of all the AIFF-C chunks in the original
input file which are backward compatible with the old AIFF spec. This
includes most standard information, such as author and copyright strings
and loop points. The chunks in the new file may not appear in exactly
the same order as in the original file.
It the AIFF-C input file contains data which has been compressed using
one of the compression algorithms supported by the SGI Audio File Library
(CCITT G.722, CCITT G.711), it will be automatically decompressed before
it is copied to the AIFF output file. If the data in the input file has
been compressed using some other algorithm, aifc2aiff will return an
If the AIFF-C input file parses correctly, and the output file is written
with no errors, aifc2aiff returns 0. If there is an error, aifc2aiff
If the verbose option is specified, aifc2aiff periodically prints
messages as sample data is copied from the input file to the output file.
