RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for oggdec (redhat section 1)

oggdec(1)				   Vorbis Tools 				oggdec(1)

NAME
       oggdec - simple decoder, Ogg Vorbis file to PCM audio file (WAV or RAW).

SYNOPSIS
       oggdec  [ -Qhv ] [ -b bits_per_sample ] [ -e endianness ] [ -R rawness ] [ -s signedness ]
       [ -o outputfile ] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       oggdec decodes Ogg Vorbis files into PCM-encoded ("uncompressed") audio files, either  WAV
       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 appropriate.

       If the input file is specified as - , then oggdec will read from stdin, and write to  std-
       out  unless  an output filename is specified. Likewise, an output filename of - will cause
       output to be to stdout.

       Writing WAV format to stdout is a bad idea.  WAV 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 n, --raw=n
	      Output in raw format.  If not specified, writes WAV 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.

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 1 -e 1 -b 16 enabler.ogg
	      oggdec -R 1 -e 1 -b 16 -o enabler.raw - < enabler.ogg
	      oggdec -R 1 -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
