CD-DISCID ========= cd-discid is a backend utility to get CDDB discid information from a CD-ROM disc. Using cd-discid is very simple. It accepts a command line parameter, the device name of the CD-ROM drive to look up. For example: $ cd-discid /dev/cdrom 7c0b8b0b 11 150 23115 42165 60015 79512 101560 118757 136605 159492 176067 198875 2957 The information returned is, in order: * 32-bit hex CDDB disc-id. The first byte of this is the track checksum, the next two are the length of the CD in seconds, and the last is the number of tracks * Number of tracks * Frame offset of each track * Second offset for the leadout track (length of the CD in seconds) The (lack of) inspiration behind this output format was the CDDB database server. It accepts requests like so: http://freedb.freedb.org/~cddb/cddb.cgi?cmd=cddb+query+7c0b8b0b+11+150+23115+ 42165+60015+79512+101560+118757+136605+159492+176067+198875+2957&hello=user+ hostname+program+version&proto=3 There is --musicbrainz option which outputs a TOC that is suitable for calculating the MusicBrainz disc id. This feature is courtesy of Lars Magne Ingebrigtsen. cd-discid was developed with attention to the CDDB specifications, available at http://www.freedb.org/sections.php?name=Sections?sop=viewarticle&artid=28, using portions of their sample code. cd-discid should work in Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, MacOS X and DragonFly. Installation ============ To compile cd-discid you need the recent version of standards compliant C compiler. To build binary, type in terminal: $ make $ make install Second command will install cd-discid files using prefix /usr/local. To change prefix, append to the command: PREFIX=/my/dir. TODO ==== Output ID3v2 MCDI (Music CD Identifier) frames. Since these are binary in nature it is unclear what the best method of outputting these should be. Development =========== If you have patches, please fork cd-discid at GitHub: https://github.com/taem/cd-discid. Or simply send your patches by e-mail (see below). If you found a bug, please report it at https://github.com/taem/cd-discid/issues. Homepage ======== Latest program version can be found at http://linukz.org/cd-discid.shtml.
