I don't think I ever saw any documentation on the actual compression
methods for AIFF-C when I was looking for it. Not any I could
understand, at least. Though at the time all I really wanted was to
make sure SDL_mixer had the AIFF capabilities it claimed to have, so
I didn't look very hard. I figured that if someone needed it badly
enough, he could provide the patch himself.

The links I used for documentation back then must have been:

I don't see anything obvious at a quick glance at the first link, and
I can't check the second one at all at the moment. (I've finally
gotten a new computer at work, and I haven't had the time to install
a PostScript viewer on it. Things are a bit... interesting, at the
moment. :-)

Perhaps you'll have better luck?
