                     synonym for category

              all    parse file and dumps to stdout in a form sourceable by
                     the shell

       send [file] address

       Mails file file (or stdin of no file specified) to specified address,
       using correct format.  Category should be one of blues, classical,
       country, data, folk, jazz, newage, reggae, rock, soundtrack, misc.

       template [disc-id] [tracks]

       Generates a template (empty) cddb file to stdout.  The command line
       should be essentially the output of cd-discid.

       query [server] [user] [host] [disc-id] [tracks]

       Looks up disc on server (should be of form "http://host/cddb/cddb.cgi")
       remainder of command line is in the same form as that returned by the
       cd-discid program. Uses wget, so if you need to use a proxy then just
       configure wget to do so. user and host will be used for identifying
       ourselves to the CDDB server. Outputs response code and entries with
       matching CDDB entries, if successful, from the CDDB server.


       read [server] [user] [host] [disc-id] [genre]

       Dumps CDDB entry to stdout. File will contain an extra #CATEGORY= line,
       which leaves it a valid CDDB file but which will be recognized by parse
       and send commands. Uses wget, so if you need to use a proxy then just
       configure wget to do so. user and host will be used for identifying
       ourselves to the CDDB server.

       help

       Prints usage information.
