<B><TT>libFLAC</TT></B> usually only requires the standard C library and C math library. In particular, threading is not used so there is no dependency on a thread library. However, <B><TT>libFLAC</TT></B> does not use global variables and should be thread-safe.

<P>
The <B><TT>libFLAC</TT></B> interface is described in the public header files in the include/FLAC directory. The public headers and the compiled library are all that is needed to compile and link against the library. Note that none of the code in src/libFLAC/, including the private header files in src/libFLAC/include/ is required.

Aside from encoders and decoders, <B><TT>libFLAC</TT></B> provides a powerful metadata interface for manipulating metadata in FLAC files. It allows the user to add, delete, and modify FLAC metadata blocks and it can automatically take advantage of PADDING blocks to avoid rewriting the entire FLAC file when changing the size of the metadata. The documentation for the metadata interface is currently being rewritten but there are extensive usage comments in the header file <TT>include/FLAC/metadata.h</TT>.

FLAC compiles on many platforms: most Unixes (Linux, *BSD, Solaris, OS X), Windows, BeOS, and OS/2. There are build systems for autoconf/automake, MSVC, Watcom C, and Project Builder.
