DIAGNOSTICSThis has to be written yet.
EXAMPLESOnce correctly configured MP3Roaster is very easy to use, just launch it from the command line with a bunch of compressed audio files, here is a short example:
% mp3roaster "Root Dance.mp3" Free\ Software.flac bar.ogg Decoded.wav
This will burn Root\ Dance.mp3, Free\ Software.flac bar.ogg and Decoded.wav on your audio CD preserving the song order as specified on the command line.
Here is another example showing the usage of command line options like the dummy option:
% mp3roaster -d "Root Dance.mp3" Free\ Software.flac bar.ogg Decoded.wav This will do the same job as above but with the laser of your CD writer turned off, so no data will be really written.
You see MP3Roaster is really easy to use, this was one of my main goals while I've written the code: Keep it simple ;)
FILESMP3Roaster can be configured through a system wide and a personal configuration file. When you run MP3Roaster it will first check for your personal configuration file in your home directory, if no one is found it will fall-back to the system wide configuration files placed in /etc.
By default MP3Roaster installs the configuration files in /etc/mp3roaster, but there are other possible file locations for the configuration file:
. System wide configuration in /etc . /etc/mp3roaster/mp3roasterrc (DEFAULT) . /etc/mp3roasterrc . Personal configuration in your home . ~/.mp3roaster/mp3roasterrc . ~/.mp3roasterrc
So if you want to have personal MP3Roaster configuration file just copy the system wide configuration file to your home directory and edit it.
