NAME ^

Audio::Wav::Read - Module for reading Microsoft WAV files.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Audio::Wav;

    my $wav = new Audio::Wav;
    my $read = $wav -> read( 'filename.wav' );
#OR
    my $read = Audio::Wav -> read( 'filename.wav' );

    my $details = $read -> details();

DESCRIPTION ^

Reads Microsoft Wav files.

SEE ALSO ^

Audio::Wav

Audio::Wav::Write

NOTES ^

This module shouldn't be used directly, a blessed object can be returned from Audio::Wav.

METHODS ^

file_name

Returns the file name.

    my $file = $read -> file_name();

get_info

Returns information contained within the wav file.

    my $info = $read -> get_info();

Returns a reference to a hash containing; (for example, a file marked up for use in Audio::Mix)

    {
        'keywords' => 'bpm:126 key:a',
        'name'     => 'Mission Venice',
        'artist'   => 'Nightmares on Wax'
    };

get_cues

Returns the cuepoints marked within the wav file.

    my $cues = $read -> get_cues();

Returns a reference to a hash containing; (for example, a file marked up for use in Audio::Mix) (position is sample position)

    {
        1 => {
            label    => 'sig',
            position => 764343,
            note     => 'first',
        },
        2 => {
            label    => 'fade_in',
            position => 1661774,
            note     => 'trig',
        },
        3 => {
            label    => 'sig',
            position => 18033735,
            note     => 'last',
        },
        4 => {
            label    => 'fade_out',
            position => 17145150,
            note     => 'trig',
        },
        5 => {
            label    => 'end',
            position => 18271676,
        }
    }

read_raw

Reads raw packed bytes from the current audio data position in the file.

    my $data = $self -> read_raw( $byte_length );

read_raw_samples

Reads raw packed samples from the current audio data position in the file.

    my $data = $self -> read_raw_samples( $samples );

read

Returns the current audio data position sample across all channels.

    my @channels = $self -> read();

Returns an array of unpacked samples. Each element is a channel i.e ( left, right ). The numbers will be in the range;

    where $samp_max = ( 2 ** bits_per_sample ) / 2
    -$samp_max to +$samp_max 

position

Returns the current audio data position (as byte offset).

    my $byte_offset = $read -> position();

position_samples

Returns the current audio data position (in samples).

    my $samples = $read -> position_samples();

move_to

Moves the current audio data position to byte offset.

    $read -> move_to( $byte_offset );

move_to_sample

Moves the current audio data position to sample offset.

    $read -> move_to_sample( $sample_offset );

length

Returns the number of bytes of audio data in the file.

    my $audio_bytes = $read -> length();

length_samples

Returns the number of samples of audio data in the file.

    my $audio_samples = $read -> length_samples();

length_seconds

Returns the number of seconds of audio data in the file.

    my $audio_seconds = $read -> length_seconds();

details

Returns a reference to a hash of lots of details about the file. Too many to list here, try it with Data::Dumper.....

    use Data::Dumper;
    my $details = $read -> details();
    print Data::Dumper->Dump([ $details ]);

reread_length

Rereads the length of the file in case it is being written to as we are reading it.

    my $new_data_length = $read -> reread_length();
