cdmp3 uses cdparanoia or cdda2wav to extract single tracks or even a whole CD and converts them on-the-fly into MP3 or Ogg Vorbis files. Using the CDDB database it is possible to include information like the artist's name or the track's title into the file name or as meta tags into the file content.
cdmp3 consists of a single perl script. Copy it to where ever you want it to reside, /usr/local/bin might be a good place. You might also want to create a symlink, named "cdogg", which points to cdmp3, so that by running cdogg, you preset cdmp3 to creating Ogg Vorbis files instead of MP3.
Additionally you will need the next packages, but this depends on the command line arguments you give to cdmp3:
cdda2wav ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/ (package cdrtools)
oggenc http://www.vorbis.com (package vorbis-tools)
CDDB_get perl module http://armin.emx.at/cddb/
If you are running Debian, all these packages are provided by the Debian
project itself or by third parties.
What's New in This Release:
· converted cdmp3 to perl
· merged get_cddb into cdmp3 main script
· added "--print-cddb": fetch and print cddb entry, exit
· added %y and %g filename format patterns
· support two-digit track numbers (%0n and %0u)
· patterns are really handled printf(1)-like now
· more flexible command line arguments
