       sfinfo - display information about audio files

       sfinfo [options] audio files...

       sfinfo prints information about the specified audio files, including file format, sample
       rate, duration, and audio data format.

       By default sfinfo displays information in a longer, multi-line format; specifying the
       --short or -s option produces a short, single-line summary.

       Any files which are not recognized as valid audio files will be ignored unless the
       --reporterror or -r option is given. The file formats currently supported by sfinfo are
       AIFF, AIFF-C, NeXT/Sun .snd/.au, WAVE, Berkeley/IRCAM/CARL Sound File, AVR, Amiga
       IFF/8SVX, Sample Vision, Creative Voice File, NIST SPHERE, and Core Audio Format.

       --short, -s
	   Print short single-line summary of each recognized audio file.

       --reporterror, -r
	   Print an error message if any of the specified files are not recognized as valid audio

       --help, -h
	   Print help message.

       --version, -v
	   Print version information.
