       fapg - Fast Audio Playlist Generator


       fapg [ options ] /path/to/mp3/dir1 [ /path/to/mp3/dir2 ... ]


       fapg  is  a  tool  to  generate  list  of audio files (Wav, MP2, MP3, Ogg, etc) in various
       formats (M3U, PLS, XSPF, HTML, RSS, etc).  It is very useful if you have a large amount of
       audio files and you want to quickly and frequently build a playlist.

       It  is  coded  in C to be as fast as possible, and does not use any specific audio library
       (like ID3Lib).  This allow you to  deploy  it  faster  and  easier,  and  to  have  better
       performances  since the less informations are loaded.  On the other hand, this tool is not
       (yet) compatible with all the known formats.


              Replace the '/' with 'ยด in Unix path.

              Display useful messages if the program fails ;)

              Choose which format of playlist you want to generate (default is m3u).

              Choose which genres (numerical values only)  will  be  included  in  the  generated
              playlist (default is all).

              Avoid to parse twice the files because of hardlinks.

              Choose the name of the playlist file to generate (default behavior is to display on
              standard output).

              Replace the Unix path with  another  string  (useful  to  give  a  Samba  path  for

              Recursively read the subdirectories.

              Replace all Unix characters with Windows characters.

              Choose  which  genres  (numerical  values  only)  will be excluded in the generated
              playlist (default is none).

              External binary or script that produces additional fields for RSS feeds (slow).

              Read filenames and/or directories from standard input instead of command line.


       Generate a PLS playlist for an album: fapg --format=pls  --output=~/path/to/album/list.pls

       You  have a file server using Samba which shares a large amount of audio files for Windows
       powered computers using Winamp. The directory  on  the  server  containing  the  files  is
       /samba/mp3  and  is visible on the Windows network as \\server\mp3 : cd /samba/mp3 && fapg
       --backslash --output=/samba/mp3/list.m3u --prefix='\\server\mp3\' --recursive --windows ./

       An HTML playlist for an album: fapg --output=fapg.html ~/path/to/album

       A playlist that contains all your classical tracks may receive the genres to  include  (or
       exclude)   in   one   or   multiple   portions   fapg  --genre=32:105  --genre=106:104:103

       Generate a podcasting XML file using an external program  to  generate  a  detailed
       description:    fapg    --output=dir.xml    -f    rss    -c    /usr/local/bin/    -r
       --prefix=http://thisserver/basedir path/to/mp3

       Generate a playlist that will work on a Sansa e200 series  MP3  player:  fapg  -f  pla  -o
       /path/to/playlist.pla /path/to/all/music

       if  command  starts with intern the build-in description (Author,Title,Link) is generated.
       Please note that in  all  given  directories  (  and  in  ...basedir/xml  )  files  called
       podcast.jpg  are  referenced.   Many  header  fields are set to defaults using environment
       variables like LOGNAME or LANG.
