This package contains runtime shared library and user binaries of GSM,
an implementation of the European GSM 06.10 provisional standard for
full-rate speech transcoding, prI-ETS 300 036, which uses RPE/LTP
(residual pulse excitation/long term prediction) coding at 13 kbit/s.
GSM 06.10 compresses frames of 160 13-bit samples (8 kHz sampling rate,
i.e. a frame rate of 50 Hz) into 260 bits;  for compatibility with
typical UNIX applications, our implementation turns frames of 160
16-bit linear samples into 33-byte frames (1650 Bytes/s).  The quality
of the algorithm is good enough for reliable speaker recognition;  even
music often survives transcoding in recognizable form (given the
bandwidth limitations of 8 kHz sampling rate).
The interfaces offered are a front end modelled after compress(1), and
a library API.  Compression and decompression run faster than realtime
on most SPARCstations.  The implementation has been verified against
the ETSI standard test patterns.
