cdda2ogg, cdda2mp3 -- extract audio CD audio tracks and encode them
cdda2ogg is a simple script that uses the icedax <fileprefix> command
to extract all audio tracks with the icedax <fileprefix> command and
encode them using the ogg123 respective <censored> MP3 encoder. The
scripts are not intended to be full-featured music archiving programs,
