Hi everyone,

we (my colleagues and I) are in need of some Sox functionality with
support for RF64 files and are thinking about adding proper (reading and
writing) support for RF64 files to sox instead of extending our own
in-house tool. Before diving in head-first, I wanted to ask around if
there are some reasons for not doing this or pointers on how to do this,
to make sure our patch will not be rejected.
It seems to me libsndfile also supports writing RF64 files already?

Thank you!

Best,
Manus

I don't have any suggestions for how to get a patch accepted, but I will
say that I have written a VU meter effect (because I needed to write the
meter to a custom device) and found that the system is not that hard to
work with.  I believe that you will be well served to do your extension
here rather than in an in house tool.

All that being said, the traffic on this list is so low as to be dead.  I
am not certain that anyone is still doing official work, though I suspect
that someone is because I saw a release in the recent past.

Good luck, and let me know if I can be of assistance,
Claude

The only person currently doing anything official is me.  I really ought
to figure out what's needed to make a release.  It's been too long since
the last one, and quite a few fixes have piled up.  Some distributions
have released versions based on more recent git commits, so that may be
what you've seen.

Måns

I will be happy to help any way I can.  I did want to know if there is a
process for creating effects that don't have to be compiled into the core
tool.

There is already support for reading RF64 files, or so it seems.
Writing is not implemented, so that would be a welcome patch.
Be warned, the current handling of oversized data is rather broken, so
don't bother trying to preserve any existing behaviour.

OK, I've cleaned it up a little.
