Free software file format parser for Avid ProTools sessions

ptformat reads and parses ProTools session files.

Audio and MIDI source/region/track information is extracted, as well as MIDI note events.

The idea is to make programs such as Ardour open PT sessions.

It currently supports files with extensions pts, ptf and ptx.
