       YaRET - Yet another Ripper Encoder Tagger


       yaret [options]
       yaret [--help|--version|--option_only]


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the yaret command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

       YaRET is a Perl script that automates the ripping, normalization, and encoding of CDs.  It
       supports  CDDB  very  well  via  the  Perl  Audio::CD  module, and also can work with your
       favorite  ripper/normalizer/encoder  (e.g.,  cdparanoia,  cdda2wav,  normalize,  etc.)  It
       supports   useful   features  like  multiple  concurrent  encoders  and  an  easy  to  use
       configuration file that lets you customize YaRET to your taste (such as file naming  based
       on the CDDB information).

       Please  see  your  ~/.yaretrc file (auto-generated at the first time execution) as well as
       the /usr/share/doc/yaret/README and yaretrc files that came with YaRET (perhaps located in
       /usr/share/yaret/dot-yaretrc)  for  more  information  about configuring the many features
       that YaRET comes with.


       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options  starting  with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.


       -h, --help
              Display this help (also -?)

       -v, --version
              Display the version

              Display configuration data

       -f, --include=<file>
              Include  this file as configuration data (in addition to ~/.yaretrc and any command
              line options) (also --conf_file)

              Include this CDDB information in addition to that obtained from the CDDB query  (in
              same format as both --cddb_dump and --cddb_out produce)

              Maximum number of normalizers and encoders forked (per type)

              Sorts tracks in order of size, completing smaller ones first.


       --date Display the start/end times

              Use color

              Send beeps when completed

              Clear the screen

              Do not display anything except errors

       [Paths and Filenames]

              Where to place the results

              Where to work on the results

              How to name the final file

              Path under root_final to place file

              Specifies a printf format for the track numbering, e.g. "%02d"

              Specifies  a  regular  expression  that  effects  the  output  of  what filename is
              generated, e.g. "tr/ /_/"

       [CDDB Overrides]

              e.g.  ARTIST=Bare  Naked  Ladies  (Make  sure  to  use  escapes  or  quotes)  (also

       --track==<tracknum>=[<attr>=<val> ]*
              e.g. 14=TRACK=Alone ARTIST=Heart (Make sure to use escapes or quotes)

              Dump cddb information to <file> then exit (no editing, encoding, etc.)

              After  the  entire  process is completed, output the cddb information to <pattern>.
              This filename works with the same pattern rules as the other output files,  however
              some  keyword  may  may  not  be  available. The information saved will reflect any

              Confirm cddb information (also --cddb_confirm) Use --noconfirm to turn off.


       -r, --ripper=<label>
              Which ripper to use (cdparanoia  and  cddawav  have  already  been  defined)  (also

              The <command> associated with <label>

       -d, --device=<device>
              CDROM Device to use, default is /dev/cdrom (also --ripper_device)

              Skip these tracks, e.g. 3,10-13 (also --ripper_skip)

              Auto skip tracks that do not grow after <seconds> (also --ripper_auto_skip)

              Do   not  start  ripping  a  new  track  unless  this  much  space  is  free  (also

              Nice the ripper process to <nice>


              As --ripper (normalize has already been defined)

              TRACK/ALBUM normalization, ALBUM uses a larger amount of  work  space,  and  cannot
              start working until all ripping is done.

              As --ripper_command

              As --ripper_nice


       -e, --encoder=<label>
              As  --ripper  except  you  may  enable  multiple  (but make sure you use the ENCODE
              keyword in --output options) (lame and bladeenc have already been defined)

              As --ripper_command

              Set bitrate for <label> encoder (also --encoder_bitrate)

              Set quality for <label> encoder (also --encoder_quality)

              Set extension for <label> encoder, default is ".mp3" (also --encoder_extension)

              As --ripper_nice


       cdparanoia(1), cdda2wav(1), oggenc(1), flac(1), metaflac(1), normalize(1).
