NAME

       SoXI - Sound eXchange Information, display sound file metadata


SYNOPSIS

       soxi [-V[level]] [-t|-r|-c|-s|-d|-b|-e|-a] infile1 ...


DESCRIPTION

       Displays  information  from  the header of a given audio file or files.
       Supported audio file types are listed and  described  in  soxformat(7).
       Note  however, that soxi is intended for use only with audio files with
       a self-describing header.

       By default, as much information as is available is  shown.   An  option
       may be given to select a single piece of information to show.

       -d     Show  duration in hours, minutes and seconds (0 if unavailable).
              Equivalent to number of samples divided by the sample-rate.
