Rips CD track to either MP3 or Ogg Vorbis files

Rip is a command line-based Perl script which rips Compact Disc tracks to either Motion Picture Expert Group Layer 3 (MP3) files or Ogg Vorbis files without user intervention between the steps of ripping. It supports cdparanoia for ripping, BladeEnc, LAME, and GOGO for WAV to MP3 encoding, oggenc for WAV to Ogg Vorbis encoding and CDDB for automatic renaming of MP3 files.
