DESCRIPTION

       The cdeject command ejects the current compact disc.

       The cdclose command closes the CDROM tray.

       The  cdir  command  lists  information  about the currently loaded audio compact disc.  In
       particular, it lists the lengths of all tracks.  It also  references  the  database  files
       specified  in  the CDTOOLPATHDB environment variable and the ~/.cdtooldb file, which use a
       simplified version of the format used by workman(1).  If one of these  files  contains  an
       entry  for  the  current  compact  disc,  cdir  will  print  title, artist, and track name
       information.

              -n     Do not lookup any information in the database files.

              -s     Print information in a short format: only author, title, and current  track,
                     all on one line.

              -t     Print a template for the current cd, including title, artist, and track name
                     information if available. If blank lines are filled in, this can be appended
                     to the ~/.cdtooldb file.

       The cdinfo command, with no option used, will print out the audiostatus (playing, etc.).

              -a     Print out the absolute disc time.

              -r     Print out the relative track time.

              -s     Print out the audiostatus.

              -t     Print out the current track.

              -v     All info: status track absolute relative.

       The  cdpause  command  pauses  the currently playing compact disc.  Resume by using cdplay
       with no arguments.

       The cdplay command plays the compact disc.  If called  with  one  argument,  this  is  the
       starting  track number.  If called with two arguments, these are the starting and stopping
       track numbers. If the first argument is a + or - then skip the number of tracks  given  by
       the  second  argument forward or backward. If no second argument is give, skip one. A 0 as
       first argument or no argument replays current track.

       The cdstop command stops the compact disc, if it is playing.

       The cdvolume command sets the output volume level of the  CD  player.   The  level  is  an
       integer from 0 to 255.

       The cdshuffle command plays the audio tracks on the disc in random order.

       The  default  device  opened  is  /dev/cdrom.   This  default and others may be changed in
       config.h. Options supported by all programs are:

              -[0..7]
                     Multiple cdrom support to open /dev/scd0../dev/scd7 [by default].

              -d device
                     Multiple cdrom support to open device by name.

              [-h|-?]
                     Print out help for the command.

              -V     Print out version information and build information.

              -D     Enable runtime debugging.

FILES

       ~/.cdtooldb - default database file.

ENVIRONMENT

       CDTOOLDBPATH - colon delimited path of database files to search.  It is not  necessary  to
       specify ~/.cdtooldb, as this is automatically added to the end of the search path.

       CDTOOLDEV - device file for cd-rom, overrides compile-time defaults.
