• ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of FAAC 1.30 uploaded.

    From [via djgpp-announce@delorie.com]" <@21:1/5 to All on Sat Dec 31 17:47:39 2022
    This is a port of FAAC 1.30 to MSDOS/DJGPP.

    FAAC is an Advanced Audio Coder (MPEG2-AAC, MPEG4-AAC). The goal of FAAC
    is to explore the possibilities of AAC and exceed the quality of the
    currently best MP3 encoders.
    This code is distributed under the GNU LIBRARY GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
    (LGPL, see www.gnu.org), version 2. See the file "LICENSE" for details.

    DJGPP specific changes.

    - To create the source archive of this port, the sources have been
    downloaded from:
    and bootstraped on a linux system.

    - The reading/writing stream is switched into O_BINARY mode. If the
    stream is connected to stdin/stdout/TTY, then Ctrl-C and Ctrl-Break
    are re-enabled so the user can interrupt the program.

    - Apart from those changes there are no other user visible ones. Only
    some small changes have been done to get the library configured and

    - FAAC does not provide any test suit so the port cannot be tested
    except by using it.

    - To configure and compile this port at least the following version of
    Bash and Make are required:
    No previous versions will work nor are supported. Any future version
    should work.

    - The port has been configured and compiled on WinXP SP3, Win98SE and
    MSDOS 6.22 with DOSLFN v0.41f. There is no guarantee that this may
    be possible with any other DOS-like OS. Due to the use of long file
    names it will not be possible to configure and compile without LFN
    support. The port has been compiled using gcc346, gpp346 and bnu2351b.

    As usual, all djgpp specific files (diffs, README files, etc.) are stored
    in the "djgpp" directory. The sources have been configured to be build
    in the "0build" directory. If for some reason it does not work for you,
    delete its contents and configure from scratch again.

    Please read the docs to become familiar with this product.
