libxmp Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies libxmp-4.5.0.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

                    Extended Module Player Library

                              Version 4.5


Libxmp is a library that renders module files to PCM data. It supports
over 90 mainstream and obscure module formats including Protracker (MOD),
Scream Tracker 3 (S3M), Fast Tracker II (XM), and Impulse Tracker (IT).

Many compressed module formats are supported, including popular Unix, DOS,
and Amiga file packers including gzip, bzip2, SQSH, Powerpack, etc.


See docs/libxmp.html for the library API reference. The documentation
is also available in man page and PDF formats.


See docs/formats.txt for the list of supported formats. By default,
Protracker modules are played with a reasonable mix of Protracker 2/3
quirks (because certain Protracker 1/2 bugs are just too weird and
generally not worth emulating). Other Amiga 4 channel MODs are played with
a generic Noisetracker/Protracker-style replayer, Scream Tracker III MODs
are played with a Scream Tracker style replayer and multichannel MOD
variations are played with a Fasttracker II style replayer. Multifile
formats (Startrekker AM, Magnetic Fields, etc). must have all files in
the same directory.


The following formats have built-in decompressors: bz2, gz, lha, oxm, xz,
Z, zip, ArcFS, arc, MMCMP, PowerPack, !Spark, SQSH, MUSE, LZX, and S404.
Other compressed formats need helpers to be installed on the system:
mo3 (unmo3) and rar (unrar).
