Am having one voice file which is in the format, $file filename filename:RIFF (little-endian) data, WAVE audio, ITU G.711 A-law, mono 8000 Hz Now the codec of this file is A-law, I want to convert this file into U-law, is there any perl module for this?

    There are some Perl programs around to do the conversions, but they usually use sox. There are alot of docs ,tutorials, and tips available for the right syntax for the conversion. For example, search for " sox A-law U-law" and you will find answers.

    Here is basically how you would run sox thru system.

    #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; #converts 8bit wav files to 16bit my @files = <*.wav>; foreach my $file(@files){ my ($name) = $file =~ /(.*).wav$/; system("sox -b $name.wav -w $name.16.wav"); }

    I'm not really a human, but I play one on earth Remember How Lucky You Are
