WVUNPACK(1)		  WavPack Executable Programs		   WVUNPACK(1)

NAME
       wvunpack	- decodes wavpack encoded files

SYNOPSIS
       wvunpack	[-options] INFILE... [-o OUTFILE]

DESCRIPTION
       wvunpack	decodes	WavPack	files back to their original uncompressed form
       using the options provided. Unless overridden with the -o switch, the
       output filename will be identical to the	source filename	but with the
       original	file extension replacing WavPack's ".wv" extension. It is also
       possible	to output raw audio without headers (see --raw option).
       Multiple	WavPack	input files may	be specified resulting in multiple
       output files, and in that case -o may be	used to	specify	an alternate
       target directory.  Stdin	and stdout may be specified with "-". It is
       also possible to	export to one of the alternate file formats listed
       below, but in that case the information in the original headers and
       trailers	will be	lost (even if the alternate format is the same as the
       source format). WavPack files are generally created with	the wavpack
       program.

   OUTPUT FILE FORMATS
       o   Microsoft RIFF, extension ".wav", force with	-w or --wav, creates
	   RF64	if > 4 GB

       o   Sony	Wave64,	extension ".w64", force	with --w64

       o   Apple Core Audio, extension ".caf", force with --caf-be or --caf-le

       o   Raw PCM or DSD, extension ".raw", force with	-r or --raw

       o   Philips DSDIFF, extension ".dff", force with	--dsdiff or --dff

       o   Sony	DSD Stream, extension ".dsf", force with --dsf

OPTIONS
       -b
	   blindly decode all stream blocks and	ignore length info

       -c
	   do not decode audio but instead just	extract	cuesheet stored	in
	   APEv2 tag to	stdout (equivalent to -x "cuesheet")

       -cc
	   extract cuesheet stored in APEv2 tag	to source-name.cue file	in
	   same	directory as decoded audio file	(equivalent to -xx
	   "cuesheet=%a.cue")

       --caf-be, --caf-le
	   force output	to big-endian or little-endian Core Audio, extension
	   ".caf"

       -d
	   delete source file if successful (use with caution!)

       --dff, --dsdiff
	   force output	to Philips DSDIFF, DSD audio source only, extension
	   ".dff"

       --dsf
	   force output	to Sony	DSF, DSD audio source only, extension ".dsf"

       -f
	   do not decode audio but simply display summary information about
	   WavPack file	to stdout in a machine-parsable	format (see
	   doc/wavpack_doc.html	or cli/wvunpack.c in repository	for format
	   details)

       --help
	   display extended help

       -i
	   ignore .wvc file (forces hybrid lossy decompression)

       -m
	   calculate and display MD5 signature;	verify if lossless

       -n
	   no audio decoding (use with -xx to extract tags only)

       --no-utf8-convert
	   leave extracted text	tags in	UTF-8 encoding during extraction or
	   display

       -o OUTFILE
	   specify output filename (only if single source file)	or target
	   directory (must exist)

       -q
	   quiet (keep console output to a minimum)

       -r, --raw
	   force raw PCM or DSD	audio decode by	skipping headers & trailers,
	   results in source-name.raw

       -s
	   do not decode audio but simply display summary information about
	   WavPack file	to stdout

       -ss
	   do not decode audio but simply display summary and tag information
	   about WavPack file to stdout

	--skip=[-][sample|hh:mm:ss.ss]
	   start decoding at specified sample or time index, specifying	a -
	   causes sample/time to be relative to	EOF

       -t
	   copy	input file's time stamp	to output file(s)

	--until=[+|-][sample|hh:mm:ss.ss]
	   stop	decoding at specified sample or	time index, specifying a +
	   causes sample/time to be relative to	--skip point, specifying a -
	   causes sample/time to be relative to	EOF

       -v
	   verify source data only (no output file created)

       --version
	   write program version to stdout

       -w, --wav
	   force output	to Microsoft RIFF/RF64,	extension ".wav"

       --w64
	   force output	to Sony	Wave64,	extension ".w64"

       -x "Field"
	   do not decode audio but instead just	extract	the specified tag
	   field to stdout

       -xx "Field[=file]"
	   extract the specified tag field to named file in same directory as
	   decoded audio file; optional	filename specification may contain %a
	   which is replaced with the audio file base name, %t replaced	with
	   the tag field name (note: comes from	data for binary	tags) and %e
	   replaced with the extension from the	binary tag source file (or
	   "txt" for text tag).

       -y
	   yes to overwrite warning (use with caution!)

       -z[n]
	   don't set (n	= 0 or omitted)	or set (n = 1) console title to
	   indicate progress (leaves "WvUnpack Completed")
