cdde - Compact Disc Detect & Execute
cdde [-c filename] [-rbvVh]
cdde is a program that detects when a cdrom drive on your system has
had a disc inserted.
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
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.
Run commands on disc already in drive when is started.
Batch mode: check all drives once then exit. (implies -r)
-c, --config <filename>
Use the config file <filename>. (Default is ~/.cdde.xml)
