       cdcd - Command Driven CD player


       cdcd [OPTION]...  [COMMAND]


       cdcd  allows  control of a CD player either directly off of the command line or in its own
       interactive query mode.  Invoking cdcd without a command will cause cdcd  to  enter  query
       mode.   Invoking  cdcd  with  a  command  will cause cdcd to execute that command and then
       terminate when it is finished.


       --device DEVICE

       -d DEVICE
              Use DEVICE as the CD device.  DEVICE is the device special file name of the  CD-ROM
              device.  Do not use a Linux SCSI Generic device.


       The following are the supported commands:

       play [start track] [end track] [min:sec]
              If  start  track  is  specified,  play will play the specified track instead of the
              first track. If end track is specified, the disc will  be  played  from  the  start
              track  to  the  end  track.  start  track and end track may either be part of or an
              entire track title. If a starting position is specified (in the form min:sec), then
              the  disc will begin playing the specified amount of time into the specified track.
              One may specify a starting position  without  specifying  a  start  track  or  only
              specify a start track and starting position while specifying no end track

       stop   This will stop the CD if it is playing.

       open, eject
              This will eject the CD-ROM tray

       close  This will close the CD-ROM tray

       pause  This will pause the CD if it is playing

       resume This will cause a paused CD to resume playing

       ff [min:sec]
              This  will  fast-forward  the  CD 15 seconds by default, or the specified amount of

       rew [min:sec]
              This will rewind the CD 15 seconds by default, or the specified amount of time

       next   This will advance the CD one track

       prev   This will return the CD to the previous track

       getvol This will return the current volume settings

       setvol [left front] [right front] [left rear] [right rear]
              Sets the CD-ROM volume to the given settings.  Most CD  players  only  support  the
              front two channels

       status Gives only numerical data regarding the CD's status

       info   Gives disc name, artist, current track name, and disc positions

       tracks Lists all tracks on the CD and their lengths

              Plays a random track

       list   Lists all CDs in a CD-ROM changer

       slot   Changes the current CD in the CD-ROM changer

       edit [name, artist, genre, track no.] [value]
              Edits  information  about  the  disc.   You may specify name, artist, genre, or the
              number of the track you wish to edit

       ext [track no., disc]
              This will display extended information about the disc.  If no parameter is given it
              will  display  information  about  the current track.  Specifying disc will display
              information for the disc itself

              This will connect to a server and retrieve information about the CD even  if  there
              already  exists information about it.  Otherwise, this is done automatically by any
              command that uses disc/track names

       device [device name]
              This sets the CD-ROM device cdcd will use in future invocations which don't specify
              the -d option.  cdcd stores this information in your .cdcdrc file.

       verbose [on, off]
              This  toggles  whether  cdcd  will display everything that is happening (e.g.  when
              accessing a CDDB or CD Index server)

       quit   Exits cdcd

       sites [refresh, display, add, delete, move]
              This edits the server list.   More  specific  help  on  each  of  the  commands  is
              available by typing cdcd help sites

       submit [e-mail address]
              This will submit a CDDB entry to a CDDB server

       access [local, remote, proxy]
              Specifying  local  will  cause CD information requests to return Unknown for track,
              artist, and album titles, and will not attempt to connect to any  servers.   remote
              will cause cdcd to connect to a server whenever any CD information is required.  If
              you need to use a HTTP proxy, it may be specified in the form proxy url, where  url
              is the URL for your HTTP proxy


       cdcd  uses  traditional readline command and trackname completion.  To complete a command,
       simply hit 'tab' when you have  typed  a  partially  completed  command.   To  complete  a
       trackname,  first  type whatever command you wish to pass a track name to (e.g. play, ext)
       and then begin with a double quotation mark.  Type the beginning of  the  track  name  and
       then hit tab.  The track name will be completed for you.

              cdcd> pl<tab>
              cdcd> play "See<tab>
              cdcd> play "See You On The Other Side"
