       mp3roaster - A Perl hack for burning audio CDs out of MP3/OGG/FLAC/WAVs


       mp3roaster [OPTION]... "MP3/OGG/FLAC/WAV files"


       mp3roaster A Perl hack for burning audio CDs out of MP3, OGG VORBIS and FLAC files.  The
       main highlights of this application are an easy to use command line syntax and automatic
       volume leveling support for best audio CD quality.


       MP3Roaster should run on all Unix like operating systems which have Perl and wodim
       installed. It has been developed on Debian GNU/Linux.


       All options have been imported, now we should add specific descriptions for each option.

       mp3roaster returns 0 on success, 1 on error.


       This has to be written yet.


       Once correctly configured MP3Roaster is very easy to use, just launch it from the command
       line with a bunch of compressed audio files, here is a short example:

           % mp3roaster "Root Dance.mp3" Free\ Software.flac bar.ogg Decoded.wav

       This will burn Root\ Dance.mp3, Free\ Software.flac bar.ogg and Decoded.wav on your audio
       CD preserving the song order as specified on the command line.

       Here is another example showing the usage of command line options like the dummy option:

           % mp3roaster -d "Root Dance.mp3" Free\ Software.flac bar.ogg Decoded.wav

           This will do the same job as above but with the laser of your
           CD writer turned off, so no data will be really written.

       You see MP3Roaster is really easy to use, this was one of my main goals while I've written
       the code: Keep it simple ;)


       MP3Roaster can be configured through a system wide and a personal configuration file. When
       you run MP3Roaster it will first check for your personal configuration file in your home
       directory, if no one is found it will fall-back to the system wide configuration files
       placed in /etc.

       By default MP3Roaster installs the configuration files in /etc/mp3roaster, but there are
       other possible file locations for the configuration file:

           . System wide configuration in /etc

               . /etc/mp3roaster/mp3roasterrc      (DEFAULT)
               . /etc/mp3roasterrc

           . Personal configuration in your home

               . ~/.mp3roaster/mp3roasterrc
               . ~/.mp3roasterrc

       So if you want to have personal MP3Roaster configuration file just copy the system wide
       configuration file to your home directory and edit it.


       None actually.


       There may be some minor troubles regarding file names, feel free to report any bugs you
       may encounter (In fact you shouldn't).


       There are currrently no special notes.
