[back to package description]
HOgg -- Ogg encapsulation stuffz

        - Cabal (tested with various version from 1.1.3 to 1.6.0)

        - Data.ByteString, included with GHC >= 6.6, and available separately
          for GHC 6.4 at:
   (version 0.7 or greater)

        If building on Debian GNU/Linux:
        $ apt-get install ghc6 libghc6-mtl-dev libghc6-hunit-dev
        $ apt-get install libghc6-cabal-dev # not needed for Debian unstable

        - HTTP1 with lazy bytestring support, from:
        To configure with HTTP support, first install the above library, then
        go install through Cabal, but run configure like

        $ runhaskell Setup configure --flags="http"


        This package is configured by default to build with GHC 6.8.

        If you are building with GHC 6.6, you need to follow the usual Cabal
        setup but run configure like:

        $ runhaskell Setup configure --flags="-splitBase"

        If you are building with GHC 6.4, you will need to edit hogg.cabal
        by adding 'fps' to the Build-Depends line and probably remove the Cabal
        conditionals. You should consider upgrading to a more recent GHC.

        Once configured, the following procedure will build hogg:

        $ chmod +x Setup.hs
        $ ./Setup.hs configure
        $ ./Setup.hs build
        $ ./Setup.hs install

        General help (lists subcommands):

                hogg help

        Help on a subcommand:

                hogg help <subcommand>

        Info about the various tracks of one or more files:

                hogg info file1.ogg file2.ogg ...

        Dump packets of an Ogg file:

                hogg dump file1.ogg file2.ogg ...

        Dump pages of an Ogg file

                hogg pagedump file1.ogg file2.ogg ...

        Dump vorbis (theora, speex) packets

                hogg dump -c vorbis file.ogg ...
                hogg pagedump -c vorbis file.ogg ...
                hogg dumpraw -c vorbis file.ogg ...

        Chop out part of a file

                hogg chop --start 01:10 --end 2:30 -o output.ogg file.ogg


          merge pages from many input files and produce a single output file:

                hogg merge -o output.ogg file1.ogg file2.ogg file3.ogg ...

Checking stuff works:

        Rewrite a file (parse pages, rewrite page data):

                hogg rip file.ogg > newfile.ogg
                diff file.ogg newfile.ogg

        Repacket a file (parse to packets, rewrite with original segmentation):

                hogg reconstruct file.ogg > newfile.ogg
                diff file.ogg newfile.ogg
