NAME
       auconvert - perform various conversion operations on sound files

SYNOPSIS
       auconvert  [-file  _format_]  [-data  _format_]	[-rate	_sample	rate_]
       [-comment _comment_] [-raw _data	format_	_num tracks_]  [-volume	 _per-
       cent_|`max'] [-?] [_input file_]	[_output file_]

DESCRIPTION
       The  auconvert  program can be used to convert from one sound file for-
       mat, and/or data	format to another.  It can also	 change	 the  comment,
       sampling	 rate,	and volume of a	sound file.  Finally, auconvert	can be
       used to convert raw audio data into a sound file.   If  no  input  file
       name  is	given, standard	input will be used.  If	no output file name is
       given, the original file	will be	replaced  by  the  converted  file  or
       standard	out will be used if the	input is coming	from standard input.

OPTIONS
       The following options may be used with auconvert:

       -file format
	       The  output  file format.  The -? option	will display a list of
	       valid file formats.

       -data format
	       The output data format.	The -? option will display a  list  of
	       valid  data  formats.  Note that	each file format may only sup-
	       port selected data formats.

       -rate sample rate
	       The output sampling rate	(in hertz).

       -comment	comment
	       The comment to be stored	in the output file.

       -volume _percent_|`max'
	       The volume option can be	used in	two ways.  If the argument  is
	       a  percentage,  the output file volume will be converted	to the
	       specified percentage of the input volume.  If the  argument  is
	       the  string  `max', the output file volume will be converted to
	       its maximum level.

       -raw _data format_ _num tracks_
	       This option is used to convert raw  audio  data	into  a	 sound
	       file.   _data format_ is	the data format	of the raw data.  _num
	       tracks_ specifies the number of tracks in the  raw  data.   You
	       must  also  use the -file and -rate options when	converting raw
	       data.

       -?      Displays	a usage	message	and a list of supported	file and  data
	       formats.
