Opens a new session window.
2.1.2: New file <ctrl-f>
Creates an empty file for editing.
2.1.3: Open <ctrl-o>
Opens a new file replacing currently edited file. Ecawave handles files in the same way as ecasound. File type/format is determined from file name extension. This may seem a bit clumsy, but it is simple and it works. As an added bonus, support for new file formats can be added seamlessly to ecasound library.
So most of the time, ecawave doesn't care about file types. As an exception, only RIFF wave files (.wav) and raw files (.raw) can be used in direct-mode, in which all processing and editing is done without temporary files.
Ecawave also recognizes some formats (like for example raw audio files) that require additional audio format info. When you select these files, audio format input fields are enabled.
When opening files, you can also specify whether to use waveform cache and whether to do a forced cache-refresh. Cache data is stored in separate files - filename + ".ews".
2.1.4: Close <ctrl-c>
Close currently edited file. If this was the last session, ecawave exits.

2.2.5: Fade-out <ctrl-d>

2.2.7: Cut <ctrl-u>
Copy marked area to ecawave's clipboard, and then remove it from the edited file.
2.2.8: Paste <ctrl-p>

2.3.2: Zoom out <ctrl-m>

Currently following ~/.ecawaverc variables are used:
~/.ecawaverc uses the same format as ~/.ecasoundrc. One line consists of a configuration variable and its value. Variable and value are separated with either '=' or ' '. Lines beginning with a "#" are ignored (comment lines).
