ripx is a perl script designed to make ripping CDs as easy as possible. ripx project features cddb lookup (by default using freedb.org), ID3 tag editing prior to ripping, playlist file generation, album directory creation and generally a nicer interface than many similar tools.
By default ripx uses cdparanoia to extract audio from CDs and lame to encode the audio to MP3 format at the quality of your choice. If you wish to use alternative applications for extraction or encoding, modifying ripx to handle these should be a fairly painless procedure.
Settings in ripx are altered by modifying the constants at the top of the program. If you find any bugs(!) or if you use ripx and think of any more features please do get in contact even if it's just some minor niggling thing.
What's New in This Release:
· Support for multiple CDDB matches, automatic update checking, and some code cleanup were added.
