WVUNPACK(1)															       WVUNPACK(1)

wvunpack - decodes wavpack encoded files SYNOPSIS
wvunpack [-options] INFILE... [-o OUTFILE] DESCRIPTION
wvunpack decodes WavPack files back to their uncompressed wav or raw form using the options provided. Unless overridden with the -o switch, the resulting filename will be source-name.wav (or source-name.raw when -r used). Multiple WavPack input files may be specified resulting in multiple output files, and in that case -o may be used to specify an alternate target directory. Stdin and stdout may be specified with "-". WavPack files are generally created with the wavpack program. OPTIONS
-b blindly decode all stream blocks and ignore length info -c do not decode audio but instead just extract cuesheet stored in APEv2 tag to stdout (equivalent to -x "cuesheet") -cc extract cuesheet stored in APEv2 tag to source-name.cue file in same directory as decoded audio file (equivalent to -xx "cuesheet=%a.cue") -d delete source file if successful (use with caution!) --help display extended help -i ignore .wvc file (forces hybrid lossy decompression) -m calculate and display MD5 signature; verify if lossless --no-utf8-convert leave extracted text tags in UTF-8 encoding during extraction or display -o OUTFILE specify output filename (only if single source file) or target directory (must exist) -q quiet (keep console output to a minimum) -r force raw audio decode by skipping RIFF headers & trailers, results in source-name.raw -s do not decode audio but simply display summary information about WavPack file to stdout -ss do not decode audio but simply display summary and tag information about WavPack file to stdout --skip=[sample|] start decoding at specified sample or time index -t copy input file's time stamp to output file(s) --until=[+|-][sample|] stop decoding at specified sample or time index, specifying a + causes sample/time to be relative to --skip point, specifying a - causes sample/time to be relative to EOF -v verify source data only (no output file created) -w regenerate fresh wav header (ingore RIFF data stored in WavPack file) -x "Field" do not decode audio but instead just extract the specified tag field to stdout -xx "Field[=file]" extract the specified tag field to named file in same directory as decoded audio file; optional filename specification may contain %a which is replaced with the audio file base name, %t replaced with the tag field name (note: comes from data for binary tags) and %e replaced with the extension from the binary tag source file (or "txt" for text tag). -y yes to overwrite warning (use with caution!)

oggdec - simple decoder, Ogg Vorbis file to PCM audio file (Wave or RAW). SYNOPSIS
oggdec [ -Qhv ] [ -b bits_per_sample ] [ -e endianness ] [ -R ] [ -s signedness ] [ -o outputfile ] file ... DESCRIPTION
oggdec decodes Ogg Vorbis files into PCM-encoded ("uncompressed") audio files, either Wave or RAW format. For each input file, oggdec writes to a filename based on the input filename, but with the extension changed to ".wav" or ".raw" as appro- priate. If the input file is specified as - , then oggdec will read from stdin, and write to stdout unless an output filename is specified. Like- wise, an output filename of - will cause output to be to stdout. Writing Wave format to stdout is a bad idea. Wave requires a seekable medium for the header to be rewritten after all the data is written out; stdout is not seekable. OPTIONS
-Q, --quiet Suppresses program output. -h, --help Print help message. -V, --version Display version information. -b n, --bits=n Bits per sample. Valid values are 8 or 16. -e n, --endian=n Set endianness for 16-bit output. 0 (default) is little-endian (Intel byte order). 1 is big-endian (sane byte order). -R, --raw Output in raw format. If not specified, writes Wave file (RIFF headers). -s n, --sign=n Set signedness for output. 0 for unsigned, 1 (default) for signed. -o filename, --output=filename Write output to specified filename. This option is only valid if one input [file] is specified, or if raw mode is used. EXAMPLES
Decode a file enabler.ogg to enabler.wav as little-endian unsigned 16-bit (default options): oggdec enabler.ogg Decode a file enabler.ogg to enabler.raw as headerless little-endian unsigned 16-bit: oggdec --raw=1 enabler.ogg Decode enabler.ogg to enabler.crazymonkey as unsigned 8-bit: oggdec -b 8 -s 0 -o enabler.crazymonkey enabler.ogg Decode enabler.ogg to enabler.raw as big-endian signed 16-bit (any of the following): oggdec -R -e 1 -b 16 enabler.ogg oggdec -R -e 1 -b 16 -o enabler.raw - < enabler.ogg oggdec -R -e 1 -b 16 - < enabler.ogg > enabler.raw Mass decoding (foo.ogg to foo.wav, bar.ogg to bar.wav, quux.ogg to quux.wav, etc.): oggdec *.ogg AUTHORS
