cd-discid man page

cd-discid — read CD and get CDDB discid information

Synopsis

cd-discid [option...]

Description

In order to do CDDB queries over the Internet, you must know the DiscID of the CD you are querying. cd-discid provides you with that information. It outputs the discid, the number of tracks, the frame offset of all of the tracks, and the total length of the CD in seconds, on one line in a space-delimited format. cd-discid was designed as a backend tool for cdgrab (now abcde) but will work independently of it.

Options

--musicbrainz
Output a TOC that is suitable for calculating the MusicBrainz disc id.
--help
Display a brief help message.
--version
Show the version.
devicename

/dev/cdrom
Linux and FreeBSD
/dev/cd0a
OpenBSD and NetBSD
/dev/vol/aliases/cdrom0
Solaris
/dev/disk1
MacOS X
/dev/cd0
Hurd
