libsndfile is a widely used [1 ] [2 ] C library written by Erik de Castro Lopo for reading and writing audio files. It supports a wide variety of [3 ] audio file formats and will convert automatically from one to another. It allows the programmer to ignore many details, such as [3 ] endianness.
In addition to the library itself, the package provides command-line programs for converting one format to another (
sndfile-convert), for playing audio files ( sndfile-play), and for obtaining information about the contents of an audio file ( sndfile-info).
libsndfile is available for
Unix-like systems, including Linux and Mac OS X, and for Microsoft Windows. It is licensed under the [3 ] GNU Lesser General Public License. [4 ]
libsndfile is used, for example, by audio-editing software such as
Audacity and Adobe Audition and the [2 ] MP3 encoder LAME. [5 ]
