Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

APEv1 specification Wiki

I got somewhat confused while reading APEv1 specification. At first it says "APEv1 has no header" and then at the end is says "an APE tag in the beginning of a file (strongly unrecommended) must have at least a header".

How can it have header if does not include header ? Can the tags even be at the beginning of the file without a header?

APEv1 does not support being in the beginning of the file. The specification has an error.

I guess it's saying that if you insist on putting an APE (notice, no version stated) tag at the beginning of a file it must have a header (and therefore be a v2 tag).

If someone clarifies I don't mind updating the text.
I'm on a horse.

It's much clearer now, thanks.
