cdtool2cddb - convert .cdtooldb file to set of CDDB files
] [-d dir
] [-l len
converts one or more .cdtooldb
-format files suitable for using with many CD player applications.
The output is a set of files, each named for the 32-bit hexadecimal CDDB ID
number of a given audio CD. These files are placed in the current directory
- -d directory
- Specify the output directory. This is where the 8-digit
output filenames go. There will be one file for each CD definition in your
- -l length
- Specify the maximum line length for the output file.
Comment lines may be any length, but the CDDB format specifies that
data lines must wrap at 76 characters. Thus, this is the default for
cdtool2cddb, but you may change it if you wish.
- At least one CD player application (groovycd)
requires lines of its CDDB files to end with CR-LF, because they
come over the network that way. The -r option tells
cdtool2cddb to output such lines; otherwise lines will end with LF
- Increment the verbosity level.
- Use an alternate identification string in the output file.
If you wish to upload a CDDB file to a CDDB server via
e-mail, the server will probably check the ID string in the file to make
sure it is from a "trusted" CD player application. cdtool
is not trusted, but xmcd is, so the -x option pretends we
- A typical cdtooldb input file
- /var/lib/cddb/misc, ~/.groovycd
- Typical output directories (see -d).
