libsndfile 1.0.11, 1.0.10

New March 13, 2007

I am providing pre-compiled static libraries of libsndfile versions 1.0.10 and 1.0.11 for Mac OS 7-9, compiled with CodeWarrior pro 8. I have made a few small modifications so that they would compile again on that platform but this is not a “port” since Erik already had support for Mac OS 9 in his code. That support was just a little out-of-date, and I hope this update will make it easier for any interested programmers to make use of this great library. (I am using it to build Csound 5 on Mac OS). These versions are a little old now but they are the last ones that I am aware of to include the Mac OS 9 support.

Libsndfile is free software licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License. I have, of course, included the full, modified source code and my IDE projects with these packages. You will need a similar version of CodeWarrior to use the static libraries, else you will have to recompile.
