Default apeinfo

apeinfo is CLI (command line interface) program designed to display tag data and audio format information for APE (Monkey's Audio) files.
Monkey's Audio is a lossless audio compression format, similar to FLAC. It's become fairly popular, but suffers from two primary limitations; very limited cross-platform support (only Windows is officially supported), and a non-free license (note: this may have recently changed). As a result, I wanted an easy way to convert APE files to the FLAC format, which is my preferred lossless compression format. There are no available CLI APE tag readers available for Linux at the time of this writing, so I modified a sample program included in the MAC distribution to output this information. I then use this information in my Convert to FLAC script to migrate the APE tags to the new FLAC file.
apeinfo is written in C++, and utilizes the MAC (Monkey's Audio Codec non-win32 ports) libraries written by Matthew T. Ashland.
