/**
 * C language API for Vamp plugins.
 * 
 * This is the formal plugin API for Vamp.  Plugin authors may prefer
 * to use the C++ classes provided in the Vamp plugin SDK, instead of
 * using this API directly.  There is an adapter class provided that
 * makes C++ plugins available using this C API with relatively little
 * work, and the C++ headers are more thoroughly documented.
 *
 * IMPORTANT: The comments in this file summarise the purpose of each
 * of the declared fields and functions, but do not provide a complete
 * guide to their permitted values and expected usage.  Please refer
 * to the C++ headers in the Vamp plugin SDK for further details and
 * plugin lifecycle documentation.
