I want to use perl commands to export my audacity files to .wav files with the labels. I would rather not download all the dependencies to compile a scripting build of Audacity. Is there a precompiled scripting build of audacity I could download that would allow me to issue the commands mentioned here: http://manual.audacityteam.org/index.php?title=Scripting ?
There is not a “scripting build” of Audacity, rather there is no pre-compiled mod-script-pipe.dll which is matched with a particular build made with the same AUDACITY_VERSION_STRING.
So, you have to build Audacity and mod-script-pipe.dll yourself at the same time (as the Manual already says).
I can note your interest in a pre-compiled DLL, though. Are you sure you cannot do what you want with standard Export Multiple and Export Labels commands?
Thanks for such a prompt reply Gale. Thank you. I can do the export through the GUI. But I want to eventually be able to export automatically via script. Can you point me to the latest URL that describes the steps to build with Audacity and mod-script.dll?
To build wxWidgets and Audacity, start from the yellow box at the top of http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Developing_On_Windows. Don’t read below that because the rest of that Wiki page is for Audacity 2.1.1, not our current code.
There is nothing in compile.txt about building modules. To build mod-script-pipe you could do the same as described at http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyquist_Plug-ins_Reference#Windows except where that says “mod-nyq-bench”, read it as “mod-script-pipe”.
Or if you are only building Audacity and mod-script-pipe once, you could open the “lib-src\mod-script-pipe” folder, double-click “mod-script-pipe.vcxproj”, then build in the same configuration (Release or Debug) in which you built Audacity.
