CDDBTOFILENAME(1)     User Contributed Perl Documentation    CDDBTOFILENAME(1)

NAME
       cddbtofilename -	rename files according to cddb web page

SYNOPSIS
       cddbtofilename [-v] [-q]	[-d] [-a] [-t] [-g] [-f] [-h] [cddbfile|-]
       [file.mp3...]

DESCRIPTION
       cddbtofilename takes data from the cddb (http://www.gracenote.com) web
       page and	renames	files accordingly.

       As cddbtofilename works by scraping the web page, it can	easily break
       if gracenote redesign the web site. If that happens, check the address
       below for an update.

       As cddtofilename	uses data from the web page, unlike many other
       freedb/cddb based tools,	it has no need for the original	CD.

       Input from cddbfile can be either html or formatted output from lynx(1)
       (either from "lynx -dump	page.html" or from pressing p then selecting
       Save to a local file from within	lynx (when you have found the page you
       want). If raw html is passed to cddbtofilename, it runs lynx to format
       it before parsing.

       MP3::Archive(3) is used for creating filenames and deciding whether a
       particular track	should be treated as an	album or non-album track
       (unless overridden by -a	or -t),	see MP3::Archive::Config for details
       on configuring .mp3archiverc to specify your filename styles.

OPTIONS
       -v  Verbose output.

       -q  Quiet (no output). This is the default.

       -d  Dry run. Just prints	the changes it would make without actually
	   doing them.

       -a  Treat files as album	tracks.

       -t  Treat files as non-album tracks.

       -g  Guess whether to treat files	as album tracks	or not,	based on the
	   current directory of	the file.

       -f  If the number of files specified does not agree with	the number
	   listed in the cddbfile, normally cddbtofilename will	abort. With
	   this	option it will warn you	then carry on, renaming	as many	files
	   as it can.  Use with	care.

       -h  Show	a short	help message.
