I've been trying to get in touch with pigiron about his original fixwav header repair utility.
I'd like to include a modded version of fixwav as a utility for the next version of the DVD-Audio command line tool dvda-author (used by DVD-Audiofile among others).
fixwav-0.1.2 can automatically repair a header with user input limited to the vital minimum. This should help out users who have lost even the descriptive sound characteristics of the file (bit rate and sample rate). To do this trick, the new version uses data redundancies in the WAVE header.
Those conversant with compiling C source files, or who have a Linux OS, can test this modded version by downloading the tarball here:http://dvd-audio.sourceforge.net/fixwav-0.1.2.tar.bz2
A Linux executable binary is in CB project\bin (compiled with Code::Blocks). It can alternatively be recompiled from source (see README and INSTALL files) with GNU Autotools.
As pigiron's original TS release came without a license, I hope the author will agree to a GPLv3 wrapper license for the whole package, with due mention to the original author's contribution.
Thanks in advance for any feedback on this new version.
