CMUS-REMOTE(1)		    General Commands Manual		CMUS-REMOTE(1)

NAME
       cmus-remote - control cmus

SYNOPSIS
       cmus-remote [OPTION]... [FILE|DIR|PLAYLIST]...
       cmus-remote -C COMMAND...
       cmus-remote

DESCRIPTION
       Add FILE/DIR/PLAYLIST to	playlist, library (-l) or play queue (-q).

       If no arguments are given cmus-remote reads raw commands	from stdin
       (one command per	line).	Raw commands are cmus' command mode commands.
       These same commands are used in configuration files and key bindings.
       cmus(1) contains	full list of commands.	For consistency	also searching
       is supported: -C	/text.

       If -C is	given, all command line	arguments are treated as raw commands.

       status

EXAMPLES
       Add playlists/files/directories/URLs to library view (1 & 2):

	      $	cmus-remote -l music.m3u \
	      http://live.urn1350.net:8080/urn_high.ogg

       Load (clear and add) playlist to	playlist view (3):

	      $	cmus-remote -c music.m3u

       Three different ways to toggle repeat:

	      $	cmus-remote -R
	      $	cmus-remote -C "toggle repeat"
	      $	cmus-remote
	      toggle repeat
	      ^D

       Query settings or key bindings:

	      $	cmus-remote -C "set repeat?"
	      setting: 'repeat=false'
	      $	cmus-remote -C "showbind common	a"
	      bind common a win-add-l

       Dump the	playlist to stdout:

	      $	cmus-remote -C "save -p	-"
	      [...]

       Search works too:

	      $	cmus-remote -C /beatles
