raw2audio - convert raw audio data to audio file format
raw2audio [ -f ] [ -c chan ] [ -e enc ] [ -i info ] [ -o cnt ] [ -p
bits ] [ -s rate ] [ filename... ]
This command is only available with the Demos installation option.
Refer to for information on how to install optional software.
raw2audio adds an audio file header to the named raw data files. The
encoding information in this header is taken from the command line
If no filenames are specified, raw2audio reads raw data from the stan-
dard input stream and writes an audio file to the standard output. If
a target file is a symbolic link, the underlying file will be rewrit-
-f Force. If an input file already contains an audio file
header, raw2audio ordinarily prints a warning message and
skips the file. If the -f flag is specified, the old file
header, including the `information' field, is replaced.
-c chan Specify the number of interleaved audio channels in each sam-
ple frame. If not specified, a single channel is assumed.
-e enc Specify the encoding type. enc may be one of the following:
ULAW, LINEAR, or FLOAT, corresponding to -law, integer PCM,
and IEEE floating-point formats, respectively. If not speci-
fied, -law encoding is assumed.
-i info Specify the `information' field of the output file header.
-o cnt Specify the number of bytes to skip in the audio data stream.
This option may be used, for instance, to extract audio data
from files containing unrecognizable file headers.
-s rate Specify the sample rate frequency, in Hz. If not specified,
the sample rate defaults to 8000 Hz.
-p bits Specify the sound unit size, in bits. If not specified, the
precision defaults to 8 bits.
