NAME
       sfinfo -	display	information about audio	files

SYNOPSIS
       sfinfo [options]	audio files...

DESCRIPTION
       sfinfo prints information about the specified audio files, including
       file format, sample rate, duration, and audio data format.

       By default sfinfo displays information in a longer, multi-line format;
       specifying the --short or -s option produces a short, single-line
       summary.

       unless the --reporterror	or -r option is	given. The file	formats
       currently supported by sfinfo are AIFF, AIFF-C, NeXT/Sun	.snd/.au,
       WAVE, Berkeley/IRCAM/CARL Sound File, AVR, Amiga	IFF/8SVX, Sample
       Vision, Creative	Voice File, NIST SPHERE, and Core Audio	Format.

OPTIONS
       --short,	-s
	   Print short single-line summary of each recognized audio file.

       --reporterror, -r
	   Print an error message if any of the	specified files	are not
	   recognized as valid audio files.

       --help, -h
