       cdde.xml - Configuration file for cdde


       When  cdde is run for the first time, an example xml configuration file
       (~/.cdde.xml) is created for you:

       <?xml version="1.0"?>
       <cdde delay="5000000">
         <drive path="/dev/cdrom">
           <audio command="echo An audio cd was inserted."/>
           <data command="echo A data cd was inserted."/>
           <dvd command="echo A dvd was inserted."/>
           <vcd command="echo A vcd was inserted."/>
           <svcd command="echo A svcd was inserted."/>
           <blank command="echo A blank cdr/dvdr was inserted."/>
           <mixed command="echo A mixed (audio/data) cd was inserted."/>

       This default file is not very useful, and so I suggest you to  edit  it
       to  your  needs  before  running cdde again.  You may add as many drive
       entries, or commands as you like.  If multiple entries are found for  a
       type  of disc then all entries will be run in the order they are found.

       The specific device in use can be passed to the command with one of the
       following special tags:

         %dev%  -  is replaced with the device name of the cdrom that
                   just had a disc inserted

         %mnt%  -  is replaced with the listed mount point for the
                   cdrom that just had a disc inserted

       Note:    %mnt%  is  determined  through  your fstab (usually located in
       /etc) file. If you do not have a listing for each <drive> in the  fstab
       this will cause problems.

       This  way,  you  can  tell  your  video player which device to use when
       playing a VCD, for example.


       This is an example of ~/.cdde.xml file:

       <?xml version="1.0"?>
       <cdde delay="5000000">
         <drive path="/dev/cdroms/cdrom0"/>
           <audio command="xmms %mnt%"/>
           <data command="mount %mnt%"/>
            command="xterm -iconic -e mplayer -fs -xineramascreen 1 -dvd 1"/>
            command="xterm -iconic -e mplayer -fs -xineramascreen 1 -vcd 1"/>
            command="xterm -iconic -e mplayer -fs -xineramascreen 1 -vcd 1"/>
           <blank command="gcombust"/>
           <mixed command="mount %mnt%"/>
