C.6 FILE

CUE Command: FILE file-name file-type

Declare file file-name of type file-type as the one whose data will be used in the following TRACK command contexts by INDEX commands. If file-name contains any space, it must be enclosed in quotation marks.

There are a total of 5 types file-type can take: two types for raw data and three for audio. The raw data types are BINARY and MOTOROLA, and they differ only in endianness — little and big endian respectively. The audio types are AIFF, WAVE and MP3 and the correspondent files must be setup to 44.1 KHz, 16 bits and stereo. The following table summarizes it:

BINARY

Intel binary raw data Little-endian — least significant byte first).

MOTOROLA

Motorola binary raw data Big-endian — most significant byte first).

AIFF

Audio data in AIFF (Audio Interchange File Format).

WAVE

Audio data in WAVE (Waveform Audio File Format).

MP3

Audio data in MP3 (MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 Audio Layer III).

CCD sheet

Since the CCD sheet file is not meant to be composed from scratch by an user or authoring software, rather created to mimic an existing disc layout, it is assumed that the source of data are the CCD image and sub-channel files, which have predefined formats and names. Thus there is no related explicit element in the CCD sheet format.

Among the CCD set files, is presumed that the source of audio/data is a file with the same base name of the CCD sheet file, but with a different extension, to indicate its specific purpose, namely .img. This file is always assumed as having type BINARY.
