cddb-tool is a backend tool for abcde. It is passed information from cd-discid
and uses it look up the CD title, artist, and track information on the cddb
database (http://freedb.freedb.org) on the internet.
parse [file] option
Get data out of a cddb file (use "-" for stdin). Options (use one and
- prints disc id
- prints album title
- track num
- prints title of track num
- prints artist
- prints category
- synonym for category
- parse file and dumps to stdout in a form sourceable by the
send [file] address
Mails file file (or stdin of no file specified) to specified address, using
correct format. Category should be one of blues, classical, country, data,
folk, jazz, newage, reggae, rock, soundtrack, misc.
template [disc-id] [tracks]
Generates a template (empty) cddb file to stdout. The command line should be
essentially the output of cd-discid.
query [server] [user] [host] [disc-id] [tracks]
Looks up disc on server (should be of form
"http://host/cddb/cddb.cgi") remainder of command line is in the
same form as that returned by the cd-discid program. Uses wget, so if you need
to use a proxy then just configure wget to do so. user and host will be used
for identifying ourselves to the CDDB server. Outputs response code and
entries with matching CDDB entries, if successful, from the CDDB server.
read [server] [user] [host] [disc-id] [genre]
Dumps CDDB entry to stdout. File will contain an extra #CATEGORY= line, which
leaves it a valid CDDB file but which will be recognized by parse and send
commands. Uses wget, so if you need to use a proxy then just configure wget to
do so. user and host will be used for identifying ourselves to the CDDB
Prints usage information.
