       gnupod_addsong - upload music to the iPod


       gnupod_addsong [OPTION]...


       Upload  Music to the iPod.  This Version can read MP3 AAC/ALAC (no DRM)
       and PCM (aka .wav) files.  It can even read FLAC files  if  Audio::FLAC
       is aviable and the --decode switch was used. (Note: The iPod can’t play
       FLAC files, in this case, gnupod_addsong converts the FLAC  files  ’on-
       the-fly’ using ’flac’)

       --help display this help and exit

              output version information and exit

       -m, --mount=DIRECTORY
              iPod mountpoint. Default is $IPOD_MOUNTPOINT

       -r, --restore
              Restore  the  iPod. Use this if your iPod is messed up. You will
              lose all playlists

       -d, --duplicate
              Allow duplicate files. Per default,  gnupod_addsong  checks  for
              duplicate files.  Use this switch to disable the check.

       -p, --playlist=NAME
              Add songs to this playlist

              Do not read ID3v1 Tags

              Convert  FLAC  and  OGG files On-The-Fly into choosen format and
              add them.  You need the Perl modules  ’Audio::FLAC::Header’  for
              FLAC  files  and  ’Ogg::Vorbis::Header::PurePerl’ for OGG files.
              Lame is needed for MP3 Output and FAAC (>= 1.24) is  needed  for
              AAC  output.   Btw:  ’aacbm’ means a Bookmark-AAC File (M4B) See
              --reencode to specify the quality of the output file.

       -e, --reencode=INT
              Re-encode while adding Files. 0=God /  9=Bad  Quality.  Lame  is
              needed for MP3, FAAC for AAC (m4a).
