Projects / CDDB / CDDB_get


The CDDB/CDDB_get Perl module gets the CDDB info for an audio CD. The included script was intended as a demo for CDDB_get, but over time it has gained powerful features like the ability to write to a database, offline mode, HTTP mode (including proxy), saving in standard XMCD format, and writing 'lame' commands.

            Where's the Documentation?
            I can't find any documentation for the script. --help lists the options, but doesn't say what they do.
