Name        : tcl-snack
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 2.2.10
Release     : 17.fc16
URL         : http://www.speech.kth.se/snack/
Summary     : Sound toolkit
Description :
The Snack Sound Toolkit is designed to be used with a scripting language such
as Tcl/Tk or Python. Using Snack you can create powerful multi-platform audio
applications with just a few lines of code. Snack has commands for basic sound
handling, such as playback, recording, file and socket I/O. Snack also provides
primitives for sound visualization, e.g. waveforms and spectrograms. It was
developed mainly to handle digital recordings of speech, but is just as useful
for general audio. Snack has also successfully been applied to other
one-dimensional signals. The combination of Snack and a scripting language
makes it possible to create sound tools and applications with a minimum of
effort. This is due to the rapid development nature of scripting languages. As
a bonus you get an application that is cross-platform from start. It is also
easy to integrate Snack based applications with existing sound analysis
