   cddb-tool  is  a  backend tool for abcde. It is passed information from
   cd-discid and  uses  it  look  up  the  CD  title,  artist,  and  track
   information  on  the  cddb  database  ( on the


   parse [file] option

   Get data out of a cddb file (use "-" for stdin).  Options (use one  and
   only one):

          id     prints disc id

          album  prints album title

          track num
                 prints title of track num

          artist prints artist

                 prints category

                 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.


   Prints usage information.
