I was ignorant of all this WAV stuff, I just wanted to make earplug~  
work without having to load a textfile.  If you think it should be  
WAV, then by all means convert the code.  But I do think that earplug~  
should work without having to load a file, whether that file is  
a .h, .txt, or .wav.



Man has survived hitherto because he was too ignorant to know how to  
realize his wishes.  Now that he can realize them, he must either  
change them, or perish.    -William Carlos Williams
