ANNOUNCE: DJGPP port of Ogg Vorbis Library 1.3.7 uploaded.
From [via email@example.com]" <@21:1/5 to All on Sat Dec 31 18:40:20 2022
This is a port of Ogg Vorbis Library 1.3.7 to MSDOS/DJGPP.
Ogg Vorbis is a fully open, non-proprietary, patent-and-royalty-free, general-purpose compressed audio format for mid to high quality (8kHz-48.0kHz, 16+ bit, polyphonic) audio and music at fixed and variable bitrates from 16 to 128 kbps/channel. This places Vorbis in the same competitive class as audio representations such as MPEG-4 (AAC), and similar to, but higher performance than MPEG-1/2 audio layer 3, MPEG-4 audio (TwinVQ), WMA and PAC.
The code is publish under a BSD-style license.
- 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
- No one of the tests from the test suite shall fail.
- Because the name of the three libraries: libvorbisfile, libvorbisenc
and libvorbis map all to the same SFN, the original LFNs have been
renamed to SFNs like this:
libvorbis -> libvorbis
libvorbisenc -> libvbsenc
libvorbisfile -> libvbsfile
To avoid any inconveniences, a new version of libnames.tab with that
mapping has been included in this port. It is stored in the "djgpp"
directory and needs to be moved into the "lib" directory of the DJGPP
installation. With this new version of libnames.tab the linker will
know how to map the expected LFN to the corresponding SFN.
- 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.
