When was a good ixemul.library ever released?
Who made the fixes?
Where do I DL it?

Why did you make a new version of Shorten?
What was wrong with your old Shorten?

According to Wikipedia you could not possibly have ported new source because Shorten has been dead for years and nobody uses it and it does nothing useful and all development stopped. So where did your new Shorten come from?

Could you please compile a nonixemul version of Shorten?

Thanks.

"shorten - fast compression for waveform files."

Not having a go at anyone here, but... it's not hard, put a short description of what the progaram does in the title.

I think he left the description out on purpose because he knows I am the only person in the whole Amiga scene that uses Shorten.

But I will stick with the superior noixemulhackrequired version.

For those that do not know, his old ShortenNoIxemul was the fastest way to losslessly compress / decompress audio files on the Amiga.

No, PlayOGG also includes Shorten.
