Produces covers for audio CDs

'disc-cover' scans audio cds and uses information from the cddb database to build a back and front cover for the cd by connecting with a cddb server to get the title, artist, and list of track titles (and extended information where available). Documentation is in Dutch, German, Spanish, and English. It supports caching of cddb entries in directory that can be shared with other cddb-aware programs. You can produce covers without typing in all the information. The cover can be output in Latex, Dvi, Pdf, Postscript, Cddb entry, HTML, text, and a format to use with cdlabelgen. You can optionally put a picture on the front cover; the program supports almost any image format. You can also assign different colors to different items such as titles or track numbers.
