NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     aifc2aiff - convert an AIFF-C file	to an AIFF file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     aifc2aiff [-verbose] infile.aifc outfile.aiff

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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
     output file.

     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
     error value.

     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
     returns 1.

     If	the verbose option is specified, aifc2aiff 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.
