In addition to dbd's reply, you better use a hex editor for to open the wav file. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hex_editor --------------------------------------- Posted through http://www.DSPRelated.com

You can open any binary file in emacs and view it as hex using M-x hexl-mode. -- Randy Yates, DSP/Embedded Firmware Developer Digital Signal Labs http://www.digitalsignallabs.com

That sounds interesting for an unrelated problem. I went to [https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs] and found the screen shot provocative. Looking for useful descriptive information I naively took the invitation to "Take the tour", i.e. [https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/tour/index.html]. Got lots of purty pictures -- "a word is worth a thousand pictures". Is there an informative page of text somewhere? TIA
