 Regions... I'm pretty sure that each platform has a program that's capable.
Most audio editors have some sort of function.
 If you search around hitsquad.com I know there's several programs that will do
this from the command line {or have little enough gui so that you could easily
run them from a script}. I don't know if they're crossplatform or not. It
looks like most of it's commercial anyway.

 Snd has several functions that will do what you want and it's crossplatform.
...Maybe it's overkill though?
