       audtty - Control Audacious from the command line with a friendly ncurses interface


       audtty [<-|+>ahlntV] [ options ]


       audtty  is  a  simple  application for controlling Audacious from the command line.  It is
       designed to make common, simple tasks fast and easy to do. It is operated using arrow keys
       and standard Audacious keys, to make it easy and intuitive to learn.


       To negate a short option, use '+' instead of '-' (e.g.  +a).
       Long-options are negated with no-, (e.g.  --no-read-all).

       The keys for basic control are as follows:
              |     <<  >  || o  >>   |
                     z  x  c  v  b

       -a, --read-all
              Read all titles and lengths on startup (EXTREMELY SLOW) (default off).

       -h, --help
              Print help message.

       -l, --length
              Show length of track in playlist (SLOW) (default on).

       -n, --numbers
              Show numbers in playlist (default on).

       -t, --title
              Read the title from ID3/ogg-tags (SLOW) (default on).

       -V, --version
              Display version information.

       Tip: Things going slow? Try audtty -ntl

              is a directory.

       a or A Will add selected file or directory to the playlist.

       q or Esc

              Global configuration file.

              Local configuration file, specific for each user.  Can  be  used  to  override  the
              global options.

       The syntax of the configuration files are long options without the '--', one on each line.

              length no-read-all


       The  xmms  remote  controlling  library  provides  no good way of detecting changes in the
       playlist, and therefore audtty might need to be told to reload the playlist if  songs  are
       moved. Do so by pressing L.  If the length of the playlist changes, audtty will assume the
       playlist has changed and reload the entire playlist to make sure it is correct.

       Probably lots more.
