NAME ^

ls2nocddb - produce CDDB::Fake info from a directory

SYNOPSIS ^

    ls2nocddb [ options ] directory ...

Options:

    --[no]length [do not] include length information
    --print      write to standard output
    --verbose    more verbose information
    --help       help message

DESCRIPTION ^

This program can generate CDDB::Fake information data from a directory containing MP3 files.

It requires the directory to be named Artist_Name/Album_Title.

The MP3 files in the directory must be named NN_Track_Title.mp3, where NN is the track number.

When the package MP3::Info or MPEG::Audio::Frame is available, the program can add the lengths of the tracks to the generated information.

For example: Given the directory Jazz/Dick_Onstenk/Dick's_Jazz_Stuff with the following files:

    01_Body_And_Soul.mp3
    02_Fly_Me_To_The_Moon.mp3
    03_Lover_Man.mp3
    04_Freddie_Freeloader.mp3
    05_Billie's_Bounce.mp3
    06_Softly_As_In_A_Morning_Sunrise.mp3

Then running ls2nocddb with option --length and argument Jazz/Dick_Onstenk/Dick's_Jazz_Stuff, will create a file named .nocddb in that directory, with the following contents:

    Dick Onstenk / Dick's Jazz Stuff

         1. Body And Soul                        3:17
         2. Fly Me To The Moon                   4:20
         3. Lover Man                            6:16
         4. Freddie Freeloader                   5:32
         5. Billie's Bounce                      4:22
         6. Softly As In A Morning Sunrise       3:55

Note that calculating the length using MPEG::Audio::Frame make tay some time but it is accurate. Using MP3::Info is fast but depends on the accuracy of the MP3 header info. For this reason, MP3::Info is preferred and MPEG::Audio::Frame is only used as a fall back. Specifying --length forces length calculation with MPEG::Audio::Frame. --nolength suppresses length calculation.

DEPENDENCIES ^
