		<br />
		<span class="commandname">flac</span> is the command-line file encoder/decoder.  The encoder currently supports as input RIFF WAVE, AIFF, FLAC or Ogg FLAC format, or raw interleaved samples.  The decoder currently can output to RIFF WAVE or AIFF format, or raw interleaved samples.  <span class="commandname">flac</span> only supports linear PCM samples (in other words, no A-LAW, uLAW, etc.), and the input must be between 4 and 24 bits per sample.  This is not a limitation of the FLAC format, just the reference encoder/decoder.<br />
		<br />
		<span class="commandname">flac</span> assumes that files ending in ".wav" or that have the RIFF WAVE header present are WAVE files, files ending in ".aif" or ".aiff" or have the AIFF header present are AIFF files, and files ending in ".flac" or have the FLAC header present are FLAC files.  This assumption may be overridden with a command-line option.  It also assumes that files ending in ".oga" or ".ogg" or have the Ogg FLAC header present are Ogg FLAC files.  Other than this, <span class="commandname">flac</span> makes no assumptions about file extensions, though the convention is that FLAC files have the extension ".flac" (or ".fla" on ancient "8.3" file systems like FAT-16).<br />
		<br />
		Before going into the full command-line description, a few other things help to sort it out: 1) <span class="commandname">flac</span> encodes by default, so you must use <b>-d</b> to decode; 2) the options <span class="argument">-0</span> .. <span class="argument">-8</span> (or <span class="argument">--fast</span> and <span class="argument">--best</span>) that control the compression level actually are just synonyms for different groups of specific encoding options (described later) and you can get the same effect by using the same options; 3) <span class="commandname">flac</span> behaves similarly to gzip in the way it handles input and output files.<br />
		<br />
		Skip to the <a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#tutorial">tutorial</a> below for examples of some common tasks.<br />
		<br />
		<span class="commandname">flac</span> will be invoked one of four ways, depending on whether you are encoding, decoding, testing, or analyzing:
		<ul>
			<li>
				Encoding: flac [<i><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#general_options">&lt;general-options&gt;</a></i>] [<i><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#format_options">&lt;format-options&gt;</a></i>] [<i><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#encoding_options">&lt;encoding options&gt;</a></i>] [inputfile [...]]
			</li>
			<li>
				Decoding: flac -d [<i><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#general_options">&lt;general-options&gt;</a></i>] [<i><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#format_options">&lt;format-options&gt;</a></i>] [<i><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#decoding_options">&lt;decoding options&gt;</a></i>]  [FLACfile [...]]
			</li>
			<li>
				Testing: flac -t [<i><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#general_options">&lt;general-options&gt;</a></i>] [FLACfile [...]]
			</li>
			<li>
				Analyzing: flac -a [<i><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#general_options">&lt;general-options&gt;</a></i>] [<i><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#analysis_options">&lt;analysis-options&gt;</a></i>] [FLACfile [...]]
			</li>
		</ul>
		In any case, if no <span class="argument">inputfile</span> is specified, stdin is assumed.  If only one inputfile is specified, it may be "-" for stdin.  When stdin is used as input, <span class="commandname">flac</span> will write to stdout.  Otherwise <span class="commandname">flac</span> will perform the desired operation on each input file to similarly named output files (meaning for encoding, the extension will be replaced with ".flac", or appended with ".flac" if the input file has no extension, and for decoding, the extension will be ".wav" for WAVE output and ".raw" for raw output).  The original file is not deleted unless --delete-input-file is specified.<br />
		<br />
		If you are encoding/decoding from stdin to a file, you should use the -o option like so:
		<ul>
			<li>
				flac [options] -o outputfile
			</li>
			<li>
				flac -d [options] -o outputfile
			</li>
			</ul>
			which are better than:
			<ul>
			<li>
				flac [options] &gt; outputfile
			</li>
			<li>
				flac -d [options] &gt; outputfile
			</li>
		</ul>
		since the former allows flac to seek backwards to write the <span class="code">STREAMINFO</span> or RIFF WAVE header contents when necessary.<br />
		<br />
		Also, you can force output data to go to stdout using <span class="argument">-c</span>.<br />
		<br />
		To encode or decode files that start with a dash, use <span class="argument">--</span> to signal the end of options, to keep the filenames themselves from being treated as options:
		<ul>
			<li>
				<span class="code">flac -V -- -01-filename.wav</span>
			</li>
		</ul>
		The encoding options affect the compression ratio and encoding speed.  The format options are used to tell <span class="commandname">flac</span> the arrangement of samples if the input file (or output file when decoding) is a raw file.  If it is a RIFF WAVE or AIFF file the format options are not needed since they are read from the AIFF/WAVE header.<br />
		<br />
		In test mode, <span class="commandname">flac</span> acts just like in decode mode, except no output file is written.  Both decode and test modes detect errors in the stream, but they also detect when the MD5 signature of the decoded audio does not match the stored MD5 signature, even when the bitstream is valid.<br />
		<br />
		<span class="commandname">flac</span> can also re-encode FLAC files.  In other words, you can specify a FLAC or Ogg FLAC file as an input to the encoder and it will decoder it and re-encode it according to the options you specify.  It will also preserve all the metadata unless you override it with other options (e.g. specifying new tags, seekpoints, cuesheet, padding, etc.).<br />
		<br />
		<span class="commandname">flac</span> has been tuned so that the default settings yield a good speed vs. compression tradeoff for many kinds of input.  However, if you are looking to maximize the compression rate or speed, or want to use the full power of FLAC's metadata system, see <a href="documentation_format_overview.html">About the FLAC Format</a>.<br />

		<tt><b>flac *.wav</b></tt><br />
		Encode all .wav files in the current directory.  NOTE: <a href="faq.html#tools__wildcards_on_windows">Wildcards on Windows</a><br />
		<br />

		<br />
		<tt><b>flac abc.flac <a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#flac_options_force">--force</a></b></tt><br />
		This one's a little tricky: notice that <span class="commandname">flac</span> is in encode mode by default (you have to specify <span class="argument">-d</span> to decode) so this command actually recompresses <tt>abc.flac</tt> back to <tt>abc.flac</tt>.  <span class="argument"><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#flac_options_force">--force</a></span> is needed to make sure you really want to overwrite <tt>abc.flac</tt> with a new version.  Why would you want to do this?  It allows you to recompress an existing FLAC file with (usually) higher compression options or a newer version of FLAC and preserve all the metadata like tags too.<br />

		Some common <b>decoding</b> tasks using <span class="commandname">flac</span>:<br />
		<br />
		<tt><b>flac <a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#flac_options_decode">-d</a> abc.flac</b></tt><br />
		Decode <tt>abc.flac</tt> to <tt>abc.wav</tt>.  <tt>abc.flac</tt> is not deleted.  NOTE: Without <span class="argument"><a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#flac_options_decode">-d</a></span> it means re-encode <tt>abc.flac</tt> to <tt>abc.flac</tt> (see above).<br />
		<br />
		<tt><b>flac <a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#flac_options_decode">-d</a> <a href="documentation_tools_flac.html#flac_options_force_aiff_format">--force-aiff-format</a> abc.flac</b></tt><br />

		Two different ways of decoding <tt>abc.flac</tt> to <tt>abc.aiff</tt> (AIFF format).  <tt>abc.flac</tt> is not deleted.<br />

					The default is 3 (front cover).  There may only be one picture each of type 1 and 2 in a file.<br/>
					<br />
					<span class="argument">MIME-TYPE</span> is optional; if left blank, it will be detected from the file.  For best compatibility with players, use pictures with MIME type <tt>image/jpeg</tt> or <tt>image/png</tt>.  The MIME type can also be --&gt; to mean that <span class="argument">FILE</span> is actually a URL to an image, though this use is discouraged.<br />
					<br />
					<span class="argument">DESCRIPTION</span> is optional; the default is an empty string.<br />
					<br />
					The next part specfies the resolution and color information.  If the <span class="argument">MIME-TYPE</span> is <tt>image/jpeg</tt>, <tt>image/png</tt>, or <tt>image/gif</tt>, you can usually leave this empty and they can be detected from the file.  Otherwise, you must specify the width in pixels, height in pixels, and color depth in bits-per-pixel.  If the image has indexed colors you should also specify the number of colors used.  When manually specified, it is not checked against the file for accuracy.<br />
					<br />
					<span class="argument">FILE</span> is the path to the picture file to be imported, or the URL if MIME type is --&gt;<br />
					<br />
					For example, the specification <span class="argument">|image/jpeg|||../cover.jpg</span> will embed the JPEG file at <tt>../cover.jpg</tt>, defaulting to type 3 (front cover) and an empty description.  The resolution and color info will be retrieved from the file itself.<br />
					<br />
					The specification <span class="argument">4|--&gt;|CD|320x300x24/173|http://blah.blah/backcover.tiff</span> will embed the given URL, with type 4 (back cover), description "CD", and a manually specified resolution of 320x300, 24 bits-per-pixel, and 173 colors.  The file at the URL will not be fetched; the URL itself is stored in the PICTURE metadata block.

It does this by carrying over any partial sector at the end of each file to the next stream.  The last stream will be padded to alignment with zeroes.<br />
