This library is not the highest-quality resampling library available, nor is it the most flexible, nor is it the fastest. But it is pretty good in all of these regards, and it is quite portable. The best resampling library I am aware of is libsamplerate by Erik de Castro Lopo. It's small, fast, and very high quality. However, it uses the GPL for its license (with commercial options available) and I needed a more free library. So I wrote this library, using the LGPL resample-1.7 library by Julius Smith as a basis.
Resample-1.7 is a fixed-point resampler, and as a result has only limited precision. I rewrote it to use single-precision floating-point arithmetic instead and increased the number of filter coefficients between time steps significantly. On modern processors it can resample in real time even with this extra overhead.
Resample-1.7 was designed to read and write from files, so I removed all of that code and replaced it with an API that lets you pass samples in small chunks. It should be easy to link to resample-1.7 as a library.
Changes in version 0.1.3:
Fixed two bugs that were causing subtle problems on Intel x86 processors due to differences in roundoff errors.
Prefixed most function names with lrs and changed header file from resample.h to libresample.h, to avoid namespace collisions with existing programs and libraries.
Added resample_dup (thanks to Glenn Maynard)
Argument to resample_get_filter_width takes a const void * (thanks to Glenn Maynard)
resample-sndfile clips output to -1...1 (thanks to Glenn Maynard)
Changes in version 0.1.4:
Added BSD license, with support from all authors and contributors.

If the output buffer you pass is too small, resample_process may not use any input samples because its internal output buffer is too full to process any more. So do not assume that it is an error just because no input samples were consumed. Just keep passing valid output buffers.
Given a resampling factor f > 1, and a number of input samples n, the number of output samples should be between floor(n - f) and ceil(n + f). In other words, if you resample 1000 samples at a factor of 8, the number of output samples might be between 7992 and 8008. Do not assume that it will be exactly 8000. If you need exactly 8000 outputs, pad the input with extra zeros as necessary.
