The Audio File Library provides a uniform programming interface to
standard digital audio file formats.
This library allows the processing of audio data to and from audio
files of many common formats (currently AIFF, AIFF-C, WAVE, NeXT/Sun
.snd/.au, IRCAM, AVR, Amiga IFF/8SVX, and NIST SPHERE). The library
also supports compression (currently G.711 mu-law and A-law and IMA and
MS ADPCM) as well as PCM formats of all flavors (signed and unsigned
integer, single- and double-precision floating point).
One premise of the Audio File Library is that the data presented to
an application need not be in the same format as the data contained in
the file. Another, however, is that the capabilities of the file format
are exposed to the application programmer should the programmer wish to
take advantage of them.
