dvda-author  version 13.10 (Oct 2013)
===========================


1. DESCRIPTION
--------------


dvda-author creates high-definition DVD-Audio disc structures from either WAV,
FLAC/Ogg FLAC (version 1.3.0), or SoX-14.4.1-supported audio formats (.au, .aiff, .gsm, etc.)

This version supports multichannel audio up to 5.1.

It can also create "hybrid" or "universal" DVD-Audio/Video disc structures,
which contain both DVD-Audio and DVD-Video zones.

A navigation feature makes it possible to start playing a video
title from within audio zone or an audio title from within video zone.

Inctructions for use are given in the following files:

  man page: dvda-author-(version).1
  html page: dvda-author-(version).html
  EXAMPLES
  TROUBLESHOOT (user-mentioned issues)
  HOWTO.conf (for configuration files)
  dvda-author.conf.example
  
See website for further details.


2. WEBSITE
-----------

The latest version of the software is available at the following internet
address:

  http://dvd-audio.sourceforge.net/


3. BUILD ENVIRONMENT
--------------------

A GNU-style make system is shipped with this package.

Details on building issues are given in INSTALL.


4. FILES
--------

Source code directories are:

  src
      main source code files

  libutils
      Source code for the libc_utils static library

  libats2wav
      Source code for ats2wav, a DVD-Audio titleset extracter that converts .AOB
      files into .wav audio files.

  libfixwav
      Source code for a special library that checks and fixes .wav file headers

  images
      NSIS compiler images for Windows installers.

  libiberty
      GNU libc code for function replacement (alternative to -liberty).

  m4, m4.extra, m4.extra.dvdauthor
      M4 macros, especially:

	dvda.m4                general-purpose macros that could be reused in other projects.
	auxiliary.m4           shorter general-purpose macros.
	dependencies.m4        dvda-author-specific parameters submitted to other M4 macros (using lists).
	sox-debug.m4           used to correct a bug in SoX code.
	iconv.m4, codeset.m4   third-party macros copied here as some platforms may not include it
			       and they are used by nested configure scripts.

Builds are provided in directory 'build' for win32 and linux.

Important DATA-type files are:

  dvda-author.1
      Man(1) page
  dvda-author.html
      HTML version of the man page
  dvda-author.desktop
      KDE/gnome desktop configuration file
  dvda-author.conf
      configuration file (default command-line options)
  dvda-author.png or .ico
      images for desktop.
  dvda-author.nsi
      NSIS script for generating Windows installer.

  BUGS
  LIMITATIONS
  HOWTO.conf
      Help file on how to generate a configuration file and use it
  dvda-author.conf.example
      Example of a complex configuration file project


5. INSTALLATION
---------------

This application performs limited patching of other open source utilities used for creating
audio and video menus (dvdauthor), analyzing audio content (SoX) or creating
a special ISO dic image (mkisofs).

The special patches used in this process are automatically downloaded by the autotools configure
script (see below).

Other building systems will have to make use of the patches available at the following links:

    http://dvd-audio.sourceforge.net/patches/mkisofs/cdrtools-patch-3.00
    http://dvd-audio.sourceforge.net/patches/dvdauthor-patch-0.7.1
    http://dvd-audio.sourceforge.net/patches/sox-patch-14.4.1

See file INSTALL included in this distribution, and COREBUILD for building the core application only.
On *nix platforms, the GNU build system will automatically link to existing libFLAC
libraries, checking for the appropriate version (1.3.0 and later).

If you do not use the GNU build system, check that the configuration file dvda-author.conf
is in the same directory as the main executable (see INSTALL for other options).
By default, binaries will install under /usr/bin.

This version will use either libiberty.a if already installed on your platform
or source code for a few GNU libc functions located in libiberty/ The list of functions
used depends on platforms.



6. CREDITS
