cdde - Compact Disc Detect & Execute
cdde [ -c filename
cdde is a program that detects when a cdrom drive on your system has had a disc
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
* mixed audio/data cd
* 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.
