       qmp3join - join mp3 files


       qmp3join [option]... file1 file2...


       qmp3join  reads a list of mp3 files and joins them in one mp3 file in the specified order.
       some conditions must be met for the parameters of each of the files (see NOTES section).


       -f, --force
              force join bypassing bit rate checks. by default, to join two files  they  must  be
              both  vbr (have variable bit rate) or have the same bit rate. using this option you
              can skip this check.

       -h, --help
              show a brief help and exit.

       -o <outfile>, --output=<outfile>
              outfile is the name of the file where all the frames will be copied. if this option
              is  not  used,  the  frames  from  the  second to the last file of the list will be
              appended to file1.

       -v, --verbose
              show which operations are done.

       -V, --version
              show version and exit.


       (all) the following parameters are required to be common for two mp3 files to  be  joined:
       [fill  this!!!].  also, about the bit rate parameter, both mp3 must have the same value or
       (both) must have a variable bit rate. this  restriction  would  be  by-passable  with  the
       --force flag.

       before  joining,  all  the  streams  are  tested  for  validity.  this is a time consuming

       in any case, qmp3join can be viewed like a better but restrictive cat for mp3  files,  due
       to the mp3 file format characteristics.


       tests  have  been  done only with mpeg version 1 layer iii streams, though it may (or not)
       work with other versions/layers.
