cdcd is a CLI CD player designed to incorporate all the features of the X and curses based CD players without having to use a clunky push button interface or having a console hogged with a curses-based CD player. cdcd can accept commands directly from the command line, or in a query mode similar to telnet or ftp. CDDBP and HTTP mode CDDB support is inlcuded, and now CD Index support as well. cdcd also supports CD-ROM changers on GNU/Linux 2.1 or 2.2 systems. You can run cdcd with a command as the argument (eg cdcd play), which is a great way to use cdcd and cron together to make a CD alarm clock. If you run cdcd without arguments you will be given the cdcd command prompt.
