 - 8-bit u-law/A-law
 - 8, 16, 24 & 32-bit linear (PCM)
 - IEEE Float (32 & 64-bit)
 - G.721 (4-bit, untested)
 - G.723 (3 & 5-bit, untested)

Fragmented files are not supported at the moment.


1. copy the file SUN_AU to DEVS:DataTypes/.
2. copy sun_au.datatype to SYS:Classes/DataTypes/.

Alternatively, if you have the OS4 SDK installed, you can just type "make
install" and both files will be installed to their correct places.


None known. If you find any, contact me by e-mail (fredrik at a500 dot org).
The same goes for (if you have any) .au/.snd encodings/formats that are not yet
supported in this datatype.


To compile just type "make". To compile without G.72X support use "make G72X=0".

In order to be able to recreate the descriptor (from AU.dt) file you will need
to have the MakeDT.rexx arexx script installed in REXX: (can be downloaded from
http://aminet.net). The rest will be handled by the Makefile.


 - improved low memory handling. now tries to allocate a smaller decode/encode
buffer if there isn't enough free memory for the default size (~16kB). previous
versions just returned an error if this was the case
 - added back DTM_WRITE support which seems to have gone missing from the
previous version :-(. fortunately I had a backup of the v0.3 sources so I didn't
need to rewrite the code for this

50.1 (27-Feb-2006)
 - enabled G.72X support (untested)

 - GetAU() now obtains it's file handle properly with DTA_Handle tag instead of
 - added support for writing in native format, like in wave.datatype
 - changed name (sun_au.datatype -> au.datatype)

0.2 (5-May-2005)
 - fixed memory trashing in au_class.c (was the cause of some instability)

0.1 (26-Apr-2005)
 - first released version of the datatype
