You can play wav files with almost any audio player, and it should tell you the length of the track. XMMS can do this fershur...

I like mplayer - it has the widest support I know of.

what I need the application for is to tell me how many minutes a whole bunch of wav files are, I am writing a script to help me burn audio cds easily and I want the script to determine if I have to many songs for the cds. Hope that explains what I need it for better sorry I didnt do it on the first time. thanks for the help though

You can get the duration of a wav file with:
ch_wave -info /path/to/something.wav

Then you can get your script to add up the totals.
