in reply to $stat=qx## under utf8::all

Your real problem does not seem to be with Perl here.

Suggest you might want to take a look at the following -> link ... .

Better yet: If you have ffmpeg installed, it is enough to do: ffmpeg -i file.ape output.wav

Hope that is helpful

    I think debian uses avconv these days, but it's much the same. The schism between the ffmpeg crowd and the libav crowd is annoying, though.
      Thanks! I was totally unaware of there being a conflict when I answered. I simply tossed out what I had used in the rare case that I have to mess with an audio conversion(about twice in my life). I did a search to find out what you were talking about and came up with this which I found interesting.

      Also interesting is that a search on CPAN for avconv turns up FFmpeg::Command.

      Another example of how hanging out here informs one of more than Perl, whether by design or otherwise. Thanks for pointing out avconv....

    Thank you. Weird to say, but it worked (ffmpeg) - i even saw garbage w /encodings - like w/ mplayer variant but what was marvelous w/ PERL: it did not complain about non-UTF char.s. So. i'm pondering on what to do: either it is PERL's error that just did not triger here for some unknown to me reason, and therefore i will yet have same problems that i do have now w/ mplayer, if i choose ffmpeg.
