NAME
       ecalength - prints audio	file length and	other information

SYNOPSIS
       ecalength [-ahtsfmbcr] FILE1 [FILE2] [FILEn]

DESCRIPTION
       This  is	ecalength, a few lines of code pompously named so because they
       let one retrieve	the length of an audio file from the command line  us-
       ing ecasound's engine.

       Limitations:

	      -	 With  files without header information	(raw files), ecalength
	      will only	work correctly if the audio file is at a sampling rate
	      of 44100 hz.  (Addressed with the	-a switch.)

	      -	 It  is	not foolproof, feeding it with something other than an
	      audio file WILL result in	ugly things being spewed back.	(A bit
	      better)

	      -	A thousand more	that I haven't thought of.

OPTIONS
       -h     Prints this usage	message.  (help)

       -a[:]bits,channels,rate
	      Changes  the format assumed by default for headerless data. (ad-
	      just)

       -t     Prints the summed	length of all the  files  processed.   (total)
	      (Ignored if with -s)

       -s     Enables script mode: One info type per file per line.   (script)
	      (Defaults	to length in secs.)

       -f     With -s will return the format string as info, alone it will add
	      it to the	main display.  (format)

       -b     If  -s and -f are	enabled	with this the info printed will	be the
	      sample's bitwidth.  (bits)

       -c     If -s and	-f are enabled with this the info printed will be  the
	      channel count.  (channel count)

       -r     If  -s and -f are	enabled	with this the info printed will	be the
	      sampling rate.  (rate)

       -m     Will print human computable time as in main display but in batch
	      fashion. (minutes) (Only with -s)
