Help explaining output of wvunpack.
Hello. I am a Linux user and am trying to use wvunpack to convert a bunch of .wv files to .wav. However, I decided to check them before using the -v flag; for example, I did wvunpack -v audio_file.wv. According to the man page, this flag is used to

verify source data only (no output file created);
as I understand it, it is an integrity check. The output for the aforementioned example is something like

Code: [Select]
audio_file.wv:
verified audio_file.wv in 2.36 secs (lossless, 46.22%).


What I don't understand is what part in parenthesis means. Specifically, I don't know what the percentage means. If anyone could help me out I would deeply appreciate it. Thank you.
