        int    sf_command (SNDFILE *sndfile, int cmd, void *data, int datasize) ;
</PRE>
<P>
	This function allows the caller to retrieve information from or change aspects of the
	library behaviour.
	Examples include retrieving a string containing the library version or changing the
	scaling applied to floating point sample data during read and write.
	Most of these operations are performed on a per-file basis.
</P>
<P>
	The cmd parameter is an integer identifier which is defined in &lt;sndfile.h&gt;.
	All of the valid command identifiers have names beginning with "SFC_".
	Data is passed to and returned from the library by use of a void pointer.
	The library will not read or write more than datasize bytes from the void pointer.
	For some calls no data is required in which case data should be NULL and datasize
	may be used for some other purpose.
</P>
<P>
	The available commands are as follows:

<A NAME="SFC_SET_ADD_PEAK_CHUNK"></A>
<H2><BR><B>SFC_SET_ADD_PEAK_CHUNK</B></H2>
<P>
By default, WAV and AIFF files which contain floating point data (subtype SF_FORMAT_FLOAT
or SF_FORMAT_DOUBLE) have a PEAK chunk.
By using this command, the addition of a PEAK chunk can be turned on or off.
</P>
<P>
Note : This call must be made before any data is written to the file.
</P>
<P>
Parameters:
<PRE>
        sndfile  : A valid SNDFILE* pointer
        cmd      : SFC_SET_ADD_PEAK_CHUNK
        data     : Not used (should be NULL)
        datasize : TRUE or FALSE.
</PRE>
<P>
Example:
</P>
<PRE>
        /* Turn on the PEAK chunk. */
        sf_command (sndfile, SFC_SET_ADD_PEAK_CHUNK, NULL, SF_TRUE) ;

        /* Turn off the PEAK chunk. */
        sf_command (sndfile, SFC_SET_ADD_PEAK_CHUNK, NULL, SF_FALSE) ;
</PRE>
<DL>
<DT>Return value:</DT>
<DD>Returns SF_TRUE if the peak chunk will be written after this call.
<DD>Returns SF_FALSE if the peak chunk will not be written after this call.
</DL>

<A NAME="SFC_UPDATE_HEADER_NOW"></A>
<H2><BR><B>SFC_UPDATE_HEADER_NOW</B></H2>
<P>
The header of an audio file is normally written by libsndfile when the file is
closed using <B>sf_close()</B>.
</P>
<P>
There are however situations where large files are being generated and it would
be nice to have valid data in the header before the file is complete.
Using this command will update the file header to reflect the amount of data written
to the file so far.
Other programs opening the file for read (before any more data is written) will
then read a valid sound file header.
</P>
<P>
Parameters:
<PRE>
        sndfile  : A valid SNDFILE* pointer
        cmd      : SFC_UPDATE_HEADER_NOW

        datasize : Not used.
</PRE>
<P>
Example:
</P>
<PRE>
        /* Update the header now. */
        sf_command (sndfile, SFC_UPDATE_HEADER_NOW, NULL, 0) ;
</PRE>
<DL>
<DT>Return value:</DT>
<DD>0
</DL>

        cmd      : SFC_UPDATE_HEADER_NOW

is beyond the end of the file.

<P>
Set the cue marker information for the file.
</P>
<P>
Parameters:
</P>
<PRE>
         sndfile  : A valid SNDFILE* pointer
         cmd      : SFC_SET_CUE
         data     : a pointer to an SF_CUES struct
         datasize : sizeof (SF_CUES)
</PRE>
<P>

	file. SF_FALSE otherwise.
</DL>


<!-- ========================================================================= -->


<A NAME="SFC_RF64_AUTO_DOWNGRADE"></A>
<H2><BR><B>SFC_RF64_AUTO_DOWNGRADE</B></H2>
<P>
Enable auto downgrade from RF64 to WAV.
</P>
<P>
The EBU recomendation is that when writing RF64 files and the resulting file is
less than 4Gig in size, it should be downgraded to a WAV file (WAV files have a
maximum size of 4Gig).
libsndfile doesn't follow the EBU recommendations exactly, , mainly because the
test suite needs to be able test reading/writing RF64 files without having to
generate files larger than 4 gigabytes.
</P>
<p>
Note: This command should be issued before the first bit of audio data has been
written to the file.
Calling this command after audio data has been written will return the current
value of this setting, but will not allow it to be changed.
</p>
<p>
Parameters:
</p>
<PRE>
         sndfile  : A valid SNDFILE* pointer
         cmd      : SFC_RF64_AUTO_DOWNGRADE
         data     : NULL
         datasize : SF_TRUE or SF_FALSE
</PRE>
<P>
Example:
</P>
<PRE>
         /* Enable auto downgrade on file close. */
         sf_command (sndfile, SFC_RF64_AUTO_DOWNGRADE, NULL, SF_TRUE) ;
</PRE>
<DL>
<DT>Return value:</DT>
	<dd>Returns SF_TRUE if SFC_RF64_AUTO_DOWNGRADE is set and SF_FALSE
	otherwise.
</DL>
