Autorip and autotag are a pair of shell-scripts which automate the ripping
and encoding of CDs to MP3. They were written with the idea of disconnected
operation in mind:
- CDs can be ripped to WAV files at anytime,
- CDs are identified from FreeDB
the next time the machine is connected to the net,
- WAV files are tagged and encoded to MP3 at a later time.
Most of the work is done by programs called by these scripts; if they are
not already installed on the host system, they must be downloaded and
Autorip was written by Stephen Crane
and extensively modified by Hunter Kelly.
