.wav decoding


I have a bunch of .wav files that i want to play via my program

I want to convert them in a format that could allow me
to play these files through /dev/audio or /dev/dsp.

Can anyone tell me if there is some tool available to convert .wav
files into the format i am looking for. (preferred)

Or if anyone knows where i could find .wav decoding algorithm.

thank you

Wotsit's Format Search is a great website about various file formats. But there are a lot of different ways of storing the data in wav files. It would be much easier just to convert the wav files to an other format.
