Information about WAVE (.wav) sound file

    Note:   wavfinfo will be removed in a future release. Use audioinfo instead.


[m d] = wavfinfo(filename)


[m d] = wavfinfo(filename) returns information about the contents of the WAVE sound file specified by the string filename. Enclose the filename input in single quotes.

m is the string 'Sound (WAV) file', if filename is a WAVE file. Otherwise, it contains an empty string ('').

d is a string that reports the number of samples in the file and the number of channels of audio data. If filename is not a WAVE file, it contains the string 'Not a WAVE file'.

Introduced before R2006a
