Let me put it this way:

a) When I designed libsndfile over 10 years ago, I never dreamed
anybody would try this.

b) In the 10 years libsndfile has been around and the probably
hundreds of applications it has been used in, noone has suggested
that it would be a good idea if libsndfile could do this.

To me that suggests that either you have a completely unique
problem to solve or that they are other solutions to your
problem that other people use to get around the same problem.
My guess is that your problem is not completely unique.

I accept good quality, clean patches with tests for the functionality
you are adding. Wherever possible, they should be cross platform.

Modifying libsndfile to do fread/fwrite style buffering would be
relatively easy. Again, patches accepted.

Was that a confirmation or a request for confirmation? Joining a
mailing list usually involves:

a) Send a request to join.
b) Receiving a "confirm that you want to join" message.
c) Sending "confirm that you want to join".
d) Receiving a "yes, you are mow a member" message.

All other complaints of this sort that I have received have been
from people who couldn't figure out the subscribe procedure or
joined from one email address and sent mail to the list from
another.

Cheers,
Erik
