cdtool2cddb - convert .cdtooldb file to set of CDDB files
cdtool2cddb [-rvx] [-d dir] [-l len] [input...]
cdtool2cddb converts one or more .cdtooldb files to CDDB-format files
suitable for using with many CD player applications. The output is a
set of files, each named for the 32-bit hexadecimal CDDB ID number of a
given audio CD. These files are placed in the current directory unless
-d is specified.
Specify the output directory. This is where the 8-digit output
filenames go. There will be one file for each CD definition in
your .cdtooldb file(s).
Specify the maximum line length for the output file. Comment
lines may be any length, but the CDDB format specifies that data
lines must wrap at 76 characters. Thus, this is the default for
cdtool2cddb, but you may change it if you wish.
-r At least one CD player application (groovycd) requires lines of
its CDDB files to end with CR-LF, because they come over the
network that way. The -r option tells cdtool2cddb to output
such lines; otherwise lines will end with LF only.
-v Increment the verbosity level.
-x Use an alternate identification string in the output file. If
you wish to upload a CDDB file to a CDDB server via e-mail, the
server will probably check the ID string in the file to make
sure it is from a "trusted" CD player application. cdtool is
not trusted, but xmcd is, so the -x option pretends we are xmcd.
