Silan is a standalone application to analyze audio files for
silence and print ranges of detected signals.
It supports a variety of audio-formats and codecs by making
use of libsndfile  and ffmpeg/libav for reading audio-data.
Signal threshold and hold-off time can be freely configured.
The output can be formatted with samples or seconds as unit
or printed as audacity label file.
