Subject: Generating files with libsndfile

I'm trying to generate sound files with the ruby wrapper
around libsndfile.[1]

I have no problem reading sound files as there are examples
for this in the documentation. But writing is another matter.

This script

require 'audio'
require 'audio/sndfile'
sf ="/tmp/anewfile.wav")
silence = Audio::Sound.float(100)

Will generate this error when run:

System error.
(eval):2:in `write_float': Format check failed: 0 (RuntimeError)
