sndfile-salvage(1)        BSD General Commands Manual       sndfile-salvage(1)


NAME

     sndfile-salvage -- salvage audio data from WAV files longer than 4G


SYNOPSIS

     sndfile-salvage toolong.wav fixed64.wav


DESCRIPTION

     Audio files using the WAV file container are inherently limited to 4G of
     data size fields in the WAV header being stored as unsigned 32bit inte-
     gers.  Many applications have trouble with these WAV files that are more
     the 4G in size.  sndfile-salvage rewrites the WAV file into a W64 file
     with the same audio content.  This file is overwritten if it already
     exists.


EXIT STATUS

     The sndfile-salvage utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error
     occurs.
