I was wondering if anyone could help.
I’m writing a program that analyses and processes audio in Ruby, using
the audio/sndfile library and narray. Currently I’m analysing a file and
storing the analysis data, an Audio::Sound class, directly into a file
sf = Audio::Soundfile.open(self.full_filename) an_file = sf.readf_float(sf.frames) File.open(self.full_filename + ".anl","w") do |out| out << an_file end
So now I have the data in this file stored directly as it is stored in
the an_file NArray.
My problem is that I want to crack open this file and load it directly
into a an Audio::Sound NArray. File.read and IO.read seem to load the
data as one giant string, even if I’ve previously declared that the
variable i’m loading it into is an Audio::Sound. Is there no way to
simply dump the data as-is?
