This is a port of WavPack 5.5.0 to MSDOS/DJGPP.
WavPack is a completely open audio compression format providing lossless, high-quality lossy, and a unique hybrid compression mode. For version 5.0.0, several new file formats and lossless DSD audio compression were added,
making WavPack a universal audio archiving solution.
- To build the associated command-line programs it is necessary to
install the current DJGPP port of iconv: http://ftp.delorie.com/pub/djgpp/current/v2gnu/licv116b.zip
The command-line programs are not part of this port and their building
is not supported.
If you realy want them, go into the 0build directory, delete all files
stored there and configure the sources from scratch like this:
..\djgpp\config.bat ./.. apps
then build the library and the binaries by runing the Make program.
- 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
- The testsuite of WavPack requires a working port of pthreads and thus
it is not supported. The port can only by tested by using it.
- 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 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.
