readcdda - Reads digital audio from a CD.
This is a program to read (or "rip") CD digital audio from a CD and output the PCM data. Typically this is an initial stage in encoding data to MP3 format.
The output data is raw 16 bit 44.1kHz stereo data. This format is directly readable by software like sox and various MP3 encoders, e.g.:
readcdda -Dsg3 -v -F '|sox -r44100 -c2 -tsw - -twav %02d.wav'
Will read a CD and create WAV files in the current directory with names 00.wav..99.wav. Alternatively, you can read and encode directly to MP3 with something like:
readcdda -Dsg3 -v -F '|mp3enc -v -sti -of %02d.mp3 -br 160000 -qual 6'
SCSI device name or number to use.
Prints a list of all CD devices and their name/number, then exits.
Prints a list of tracks on the CD, then exits.
Selects the first track to read. Defaults to the first track on the CD.
Selects the last track to read. Defaults to the same as -f if that was selected (i.e. read just one track) or the last track on the CD if it was not (i.e. read the whole CD.)
Output is saved in this directory, with names of "00".."99".
Output is sent to standard output.
Output is sent to a name generated by a printf()-style format, e.g. "%02d".
Gives progress reports.
Givess script and module versions and exits.
Prints this text and exits.
