check slim/server/CPAN/Audio/FLAC.pm. That module will eventually be in
CPAN, but isn't yet - that's how it will be named once it's put into CPAN.
My understanding is that the Slim tree has a local copy of the CPAN modules
that are used in the server code. Now that I've seen
Ogg::Vorbis::Header::PurePerl.pm, I might model my info/tag modules for
MPC/APE/Wavepack on that same model...and perhaps we should do the same with
the FLAC tag/info parser.
