       cdcd - Command Driven CD player


       cdcd [OPTION]...  [COMMAND]


       cdcd  allows  control of a CD player either directly off of the command
       line or in its own interactive query mode.   Invoking  cdcd  without  a
       command  will  cause  cdcd  to  enter query mode.  Invoking cdcd with a
       command will cause cdcd to execute that command and then terminate when
       it is finished.


       --device DEVICE

       -d DEVICE
              Use  DEVICE as the CD device.  DEVICE is the device special file
              name of the CD-ROM device.  Do not  use  a  Linux  SCSI  Generic


       The following are the supported commands:

       play [start track] [end track] [min:sec]
              If  start track is specified, play will play the specified track
              instead of the first track. If end track is specified, the  disc
              will  be  played  from  the  start track to the end track. start
              track and end track may either be part of  or  an  entire  track
              title.  If  a  starting  position  is  specified  (in  the  form
              min:sec), then the disc will begin playing the specified  amount
              of  time  into  the specified track.  One may specify a starting
              position without specifying a start  track  or  only  specify  a
              start track and starting position while specifying no end track

       stop   This will stop the CD if it is playing.

       open, eject
              This will eject the CD-ROM tray

       close  This will close the CD-ROM tray

       pause  This will pause the CD if it is playing

       resume This will cause a paused CD to resume playing

       ff [min:sec]
              This  will  fast-forward  the  CD  15 seconds by default, or the
              specified amount of time

       rew [min:sec]
              This will rewind the CD 15 seconds by default, or the  specified
              amount of time

       next   This will advance the CD one track

       prev   This will return the CD to the previous track

       getvol This will return the current volume settings

       setvol [left front] [right front] [left rear] [right rear]
              Sets  the  CD-ROM volume to the given settings.  Most CD players
              only support the front two channels

       status Gives only numerical data regarding the CD’s status

       info   Gives disc name, artist, current track name, and disc positions

       tracks Lists all tracks on the CD and their lengths

              Plays a random track

       list   Lists all CDs in a CD-ROM changer

       slot   Changes the current CD in the CD-ROM changer

       edit [name, artist, genre, track no.] [value]
              Edits information about the disc.  You may specify name, artist,
              genre, or the number of the track you wish to edit

       ext [track no., disc]
              This  will  display  extended information about the disc.  If no
              parameter is given it will display information about the current
              track.   Specifying  disc  will display information for the disc

              This will connect to a server and retrieve information about the
              CD   even   if   there  already  exists  information  about  it.
              Otherwise, this is done automatically by any command  that  uses
              disc/track names

       device [device name]
              This  sets the CD-ROM device cdcd will use in future invocations
              which don’t specify the -d option.  cdcd stores this information
              in your .cdcdrc file.

       verbose [on, off]
              This  toggles  whether  cdcd  will  display  everything  that is
              happening (e.g.  when accessing a CDDB or CD Index server)

       quit   Exits cdcd

       sites [refresh, display, add, delete, move]
              This edits the server list.  More specific help on each  of  the
              commands is available by typing cdcd help sites

       submit [e-mail address]
              This will submit a CDDB entry to a CDDB server

       access [local, remote, proxy]
              Specifying  local  will  cause CD information requests to return
              Unknown for track,  artist,  and  album  titles,  and  will  not
              attempt  to  connect  to any servers.  remote will cause cdcd to
              connect to a server whenever any CD information is required.  If
              you  need  to  use a HTTP proxy, it may be specified in the form
              proxy url, where url is the URL for your HTTP proxy


       cdcd uses traditional readline command and  trackname  completion.   To
       complete  a  command,  simply hit ’tab’ when you have typed a partially
       completed command.   To  complete  a  trackname,  first  type  whatever
       command  you  wish  to  pass  a track name to (e.g. play, ext) and then
       begin with a double quotation mark.  Type the beginning  of  the  track
       name and then hit tab.  The track name will be completed for you.

              cdcd> pl<tab>
              cdcd> play "See<tab>
              cdcd> play "See You On The Other Side"
