cdr - CD Rip
cdr is a Perl program that provides a simple console front-end to creating high-quality MP3s. Instead of just duplicating the README file here, I recommend you download the tarball for a closer look at what cdr does.
What do I need?
Since cdr is a frontend, it requires many programs in order to do its work. cdr comes with most of the tools you'll need, but you need to make sure you have the following installed:
Here is a list of the types of programs you'll need and where to get them. The programs that come with cdr are marked with an [i]. cdr provides at least one program from each category, sometimes more. To use a supported program that is not provided, you'll have to get that on your own.
17 June, 2002: Lucas Gonze created a SourceForge project for CDR and moved everything over to there.
cdr started its life as a project by David Cantrell. I had nothing to do with it at all until a couple weeks ago when I went searching for a solid, mostly-automated package to MP3-ify my CD collection via my Linux box.
cdr was the best thing I saw out there for my needs, but the twin events of my wanting some new features and David's getting hired into a busy job at Slackware provided the impetus for me to take reins on cdr for a bit. I have had very little to do with it so far, and certainly don't deserve much credit, so I just hope I shepherd it well (for David's sake), and I hope that you like it if you try it out.
