NAME
       flake - Alternative Free Lossless Audio Codec encoder

SYNOPSIS
       flake [options] [input.wav] [output.flac]

DESCRIPTION
       flake is an alternative encoder for the Free Lossless Audio Codec. Most
       tests turn out very similar or slightly better compression than the
       FLAC reference encoder, and it generally encodes significantly faster.
       Decoding times of the generated files are also close to those made by
       the reference encoder.

OPTIONS
       -h     Print out list of commandline options

       -p #   Padding bytes to put in header (default: 4096)

       -0..-12
              Compression level (default: 5)

       -b #   Block size [16 - 65535] (default: 4608)

       -l #   Maximum prediction order [0 - 32] (default: 8)

       -o #   Prediction order selection method (0 = maximum, 1 = estimate
              (default), 2 = 2-level, 3 = 4-level, 4 = 8-level, 5 = full
              search)

       -s #   Stereo decorrelation method (0 = independent L+R channels, 1 =
              mid-side (default))
