Here are some thoughts after having a look at the beta00 CLI tools on linux:
usage info , ie with a “–help” flag, would be really good.
output of indices/data to text could be useful. (eg bufampslice , at least on linux, in what I tested) output to a wav/riff headered file, but I am not aware of anything that would take that as an input so need another step to parse out the sample positions/whatever data it contains to a list of numbers that can be used in some other processing. If I am misunderstanding the benefits of this then please point me in the right direction…
argument validation / sanity check, eg if for some reason I am inclined to run “… -maxfftsize 9999999999” then the output is 2000 characters of stack trace, it does detail the problem but maybe not immediately clear, there may be some examples not quite as ridiculous as the above command.
