Projects / PostScript::CDCover


PostScript::CDCover generates a Postscript program that prints a CD cover and backlabel, with contents displayed as a tree of directories and files. The module ships with a stand-alone, ready-to-use script, pscdcover, that takes the directory tree of a CD-ROM as input and generates a cover from it. The output can be directly fed to a PostScript printer, but it is designed to be easily editable (should one wish to remove unwanted directory entries, for example).

    Release Notes: The module grew into a fully-fledged Perl module and is now available from CPAN. This will allow for more flexible ways to generate content, and made the installation procedure more streamlined.

    •  24 Mar 2004 01:18

      Release Notes: This release introduces the use of a configuration file to store default parameter values. The installation is made easier by means of a Makefile. The output now uses the ISO-8859-15 (Latin9) encoding as a replacement to Latin1. There are some minor improvements such as more sensible default values.

        Release Notes: This release introduces the possibility to print color icons instead of grayscale ones. Also, CD titles that are too long to fit within the page width are now scaled down.

        •  12 Feb 2004 14:27

          Release Notes: A new --mp3 switch makes the program read the ID3 tag from MP3 files and print the title of the songs instead of the filenames.

          •  05 Feb 2004 11:44

            Release Notes: This release adds the ability to print separating lines between columns, adds the ability to set a minimum width for the right-most column, and prints one of the side titles upside down, to always read correctly, whichever way the CD case is on a shelf.
