ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

CDDA_DEVICEReserved or later :)
CDROMTry this cdrom as default (if unset, CDROM_DEFAULT
from params.h is used).
CDDB_PATHpath to your local cddb files (if unset, _no_ cddb titelinfo
is displayed)
CDDB_SERVERIP:PORT of a freedb server (if unset, only local cddb
stuff is used, if it exists in $CDDB_PATH/$discid).
LOGNAMEIs used for remote cddb login.
HOSTNAMEIs used for remote cddb login too.
 

FILES

$HOME/.workmandbIs used (first) for reading wmdb entries.
$CDDB_PATH/*Is used for reeading/writing cddb entries.
 

RETURN VALUES

0 no errors occured / normal quit
1 the given cd-device isn't a cd-device
2 your cd seems to be sth. other then a CD-Audio or CD-Mixed
3 some error while processing terminal code
 

NOTES

Some terminals don't like the default escape-sequences from params.h ... if so, you have to edit them ! Successfully tested terminals are vt100, linux, xterm, xterm-color.

If you haven't direct access to a freedb server, you may use some port redirector program ... see freshmeat.

If you have devfs, mcdp will try /dev/cdroms/cdrom0, else /dev/cdrom is tried!
