NAME

cdde - Compact Disc Detect & Execute

SYNOPSIS

cdde [ -c filename] [-rbvVh]

DESCRIPTION

cdde is a program that detects when a cdrom drive on your system has had a disc inserted.
 
When it finds a disc inserted in the drive it will attempt to determine the type of the disc, and execute a specified command.
 
This means you can put in a dvd and your favorite dvd software will start, or put in a data cd and it will be automatically mounted for you.
 
Right now cdde can detect the following types of discs:
* audio cd
* data cd
* dvd
* mixed audio/data cd
* vcd
* svcd
* blank cdr/dvdr
 
For now the dvd checking is just a bit of magic that checks to see if there's a "video_ts" directory on the disc. Same goes for the vcd checking: it just looks for a "vcd" directory on the disc.
 
cdde reads its configuration from "~/.cdde.xml" unless otherwise specified on the command line.
