NAME

       cueprint - report disc and track infomation from a CUE or TOC file

SYNOPSIS

       cueprint  [  { -i format | --input-format=format } { -n number | --track-number=number } {
       -d template | --disc-template=template } { -t template | --track-template=template }  ]  [
       file ... ]
       cueprint --help

DESCRIPTION

       cueprint  reports  disc  and track information from CUE and TOC files, which are typically
       created by compact disc ripping software.

       By default, cueprint reports a default set of disc  information,  and  a  default  set  of
       information  for  each track on the disc.  With options, the report can be restricted to a
       specific track, and the presentation of the disc and track information can be  extensively
       customized  using printf(3)-style format strings (referred to here as ‘templates’ to avoid
       confusion with the concept of file format).  All characters in a template  are  reproduced
       as-is in the output except for conversions (which begin with ‘%’) and escapes (which begin
       with ‘\’).

       If no filenames are specified, cueprint reads from standard input,  and  an  input  format
       option  must  be  specified.   If  one or more filenames is provided, but the input format
       option is not specified, the input format will be guessed  based  on  each  file's  suffix
       (e.g., .cue or .toc).  This heuristic is case-insensitive.

   Conversions
       A conversion has the form ‘%[flags][width][.precision]type’.

       flags may be zero or more of the following:

       Character     Meaning
       ───────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
       -             left-justify expansion
       +             place sign before numbers
       ‘ ’ (space)   place a blank space before a positive number
       0             pad numbers with zeroes

       width  is the minimum field width.  precision is the maximum width for strings.  type is a
       single character which specifies the conversion type —  apart  from  %,  it  is  the  only
       mandatory part of the conversion.

       The available conversion types are presented in the table below; disc conversion types are
       presented in the left half of the table, and track conversion types  in  the  right  half.
       Disc template expansion characters are valid for both disc and track templates.

       Character   Conversion         Character   Conversion
       ────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────
       A           album arranger     a           track arranger
       C           album composer     c           track composer
       G           album genre        g           track genre
                                      i           track ISRC
       M           album message      m           track message
       N           number of tracks   n           track number
       P           album performer    p           track performer
       S           album songwriter
       T           album title        t           track title
       U           album UPC/EAN      u           track ISRC (CD-TEXT)

       Any  other  character  used as a conversion type expands to itself.  This is how a literal
       percent sign is placed in the template; i.e., ‘%%’ expands to ‘%’.

   Escapes
       The recognized escapes are all single characters, and listed in the table below.

       Escape Sequence   Expansion
       ──────────────────────────────────
       \a                alert (bell)
       \b                backspace
       \f                formfeed
       \n                newline
       \r                carriage return
       \t                horizontal tab
       \v                vertical tab
       \0                null

       Any other character used after the ‘\’ in an escape sequence expands to itself.   This  is
       how a literal escape character is placed in the template; i.e., ‘\\’ expands to ‘\’.

OPTIONS

       -d template, --disc-template=template
              set disc template (see TEMPLATE EXPANSION)

       -h, --help
              displays a usage message and exits.

       -i format, --input-format=format
              sets  the  expected format of the input file(s) to format, which must be either cue
              or toc.

       -n number, --track-number=number
              only print track  information  for  a  single  track.   The  default  is  to  print
              information for all tracks.

       -t template, --track-template=template
              set track template (see TEMPLATE EXPANSION)

EXIT STATUS

       cueprint  exits  with  status  zero if it successfully reports information from each input
       file, and nonzero if there were problems.

EXAMPLES

       To display disc and track information (using the default template for both):

       % cueprint album.cue

       To print the number of tracks in a CUE file:

       % cueprint -d '%N\n' album.cue
