TITLE

  cdid2asim

VERSION

  1.4

AUTHOR

  Thomas Aglassinger <agi at giga.or.at>

DESCRIPTION

  Transfers an already existing CDID-file to an Audio-CD (CDDA):
  relabels the disk and renames the tracks using the information
  found in the CDID-file.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

  AsimCDFS 3.5, SCSI-CD-Rom with support for Audio-CDs, AmigaOS 2.x.
  and CDID-files (which can be created and modified by several
  CDDA-Players, like MCDPlayer and OptyCDPlayer).

  It also might work with older versions of AsimCDFS, but I didn't
  test this.

AVAILABILITY

  Every Aminet-mirror, file "disk/cdrom/cdid2asim.lha"; for example
  "ftp://ftp.wustl.edu/pub/aminet/disk/cdrom/cdid2asim.lha".

PRICE

  Freeware.

DISTRIBUTABILITY

  Cdid2asim is copyrighted freeware. It may be distributed freely as
  long as no modifications are made to the executable and this
  document. A nominal fee may be asked to cover distribution costs.

  Cdid2asim may not be used for any commercial purposes or included
  with any commercial product without the written permission of the
  author.

MOTIVATION

  AsimCDFS supports CDDAs is quite nifty way: You can access every
  track immediately as file. By default, they are named like "Track.1",
  "Track.2" and so on. These names can be changed (from Workbench or
  using AsimTunes), but this is a rather dull task.

  There already exists a large pool of CDID-files (for example,
  aminet:disk/cdrom/CDIDCollection.lha), but unfortunately, no
  converter is included with AsimCDFS.

INSTALLATION

  Drag the icon anywhere you want and modify the tooltypes to fit your
  needs.

  If you want to use it from CLI, make sure that stack has been set
  to at least 16 KB (enter "stack 16384" in CLI).

TEMPLATE

  CDIDPATH/K,TRACKPATH/K,NOTITLE/S,NOTRACKS/S,NOBLANKS/S,
  RESET/S,VERBOSE/S

USAGE

  Cdid2asim can be invoked from CLI or Workbench. The arguments
  for the tooltypes are the same as for CLI.

  CDIDPATH   directory, where the CDID-files ("ID#?") are located
  TRACKPATH  directory, where the "Track.#?"-files are located.
             default "CD0:AIFF_Stereo"; usually, there should be no
             need to change this.
             NOTE: Renaming a file in one of the directories for 
             different audio-formats also affects all corresponding 
             files in all other directories.
  NOTITLE    do not relabel disk with album-title
  NOTRACKS   do not rename files with track-title
  NOBLANKS   replace blanks in titles by underscores ("_")
  RESET      reset title and/or tracks to defaults ("Title_Unknown"
             and "Track.#?")
  VERBOSE    enable verbose output

  The required CDID-file needs already to exist, and, of course,
  the CDDA you want to apply the CDID-file on needs to be inserted
  in your CD-ROM-drive.

  Cdid2asim does some manipulation on the original title when
  converting it to a filename:
  - surrounding blanks are removed
  - text inside brackets is removed
  - some special characters ("#?|~..") are replaced by "-"
  - "/" is replaced by "\"

  If the filename is still too long, it will be cut down to the
  filesystem-maximum (30 characters for the album-title, 25 characters
  for track-titles) and the last two characters will be "..".

  If several tracks exist with the same name or tracks don't result
  in unique filenames after 25 characters, an unique filename will
  be computed (extensions like ".1", ".2".. are appended).

  Of course, the original CDID-file remains unchanged during the
  whole process.

EXAMPLE

  CDID-file: ID100081EC029E71
    ("[xyz]" denotes comments which are not part of the CDID-file)

    Half Man Half Biscuit                        [artist]
    Mc Intyre, Treadmore And Davitt              [title]
    Outbreak Of Vitas Gerulaitis                 [track#1]
    Prag Vec At The Melkweg                      [track#2]
    Christian Rock Concert                       [track#3]
    Lets Not                                     [track#4]
    Yipps (My Baby Got The)                      [track#5]
    Hedley Verityesque                           [track#6]
    A Lilac Harry Quinn                          [track#7]
    Our Tune                                     [track#8]
    Girlfriend's Finished With Him               [track#9]
    Everything's A.O.R.                          [track#10]

  Command call (for my machine):

    cdid2asim CDIDPATH=appl:sound/disks VERBOSE

  Program output:

    cdid2asim - apply CDID-file on AsimCDFS-CDDA (v1.4, 24.09.97)
    (C) Thomas Aglassinger 1996,1997 - This is Freeware!
    Rename `CD0:' to `Mc Intyre, Treadmore And..'
    Rename `Track.1' to `Outbreak Of Vitas..'
    Rename `Track.2' to `Prag Vec At The Melkweg'
    Rename `Track.3' to `Christian Rock Concert'
    Rename `Track.4' to `Lets Not'
    Rename `Track.5' to `Yipps'
    Rename `Track.6' to `Hedley Verityesque'
    Rename `Track.7' to `A Lilac Harry Quinn'
    Rename `Track.8' to `Our Tune'
    Rename `Track.9' to `Girlfriend's Finished..'
    Rename `Track.10' to `Everything's A.O.R.'
    10 out of 10 track-titles modified

  Comments:

    For the title, "Mc Intyre, Treadmore And Davitt", the text is
    reduced to fit 30 characters and ends with ".."
    For track#1, "Outbreak Of Vitas Gerulaitis", the text is reduced
    to fit 25 characters and ends with "..". This still allows a
    ".info" to be appended to the filename.
    For track#5, "Yipps (My Baby Got The)", the text inside brackets
    is removed and results in "Yipps".

PROBLEMS

  - If CLI-Version crashes, make sure that a stack of at least 16 KB 
    is used (enter "stack 16384" in CLI)
  - When updating the album-title (with NOTITLE not specified), 
    CDDAs currently playing are interrupted. This is a feature of
    AsimCDFS.
  - Cdid2asim asumes that Examine() and ExNext() return the
    track-sequence in correct order. This is the case for version
    3.x of AsimCDFS, but if this changes in future, the filenames
    won't fit the corresponding tracks anymore.
  - As a feature of AsimCDFS, the usage of cdid2asim also affects
    the database used by AsimTunes, but the artist-field remains
    untouched.

  If, for some reason, the filenames get totally trashed, you
  can repair them using the editor of AsimTunes. I needed this
  once during development, when two files got identical names
  (of course, this bug has already been fixed).

DISCLAIMER

  No responsibilities are taken for damaged CDs, CDROM drives, Amigas
  or any other components or data involved while using cdid2asim.

  If you find any bugs, let me know.

HISTORY

  Version 1.4, 25-Sep-1997
  - characters with an ASCII-code greater than 128 are now treated
    like alphanumeric characters; for instance J.Karjalainen's
    "Rockin' Kyöstin rokkibändi" now results in "Rockin' Kyöstin.."
    instead of "Rockin' Kyöstin rokkibä.."
  - now CD-title only is updated if necessary

  Version 1.3, 21-May-1997
  - no more SCSI device and unit necessary, as this information
    is now obtained from the device name (usually CD0:)
  - removed CLI options DEVICE and UNIT (as a result of the above)
  - check, if CD drive is handled by AsimCDFS, is now performed in a
    better way (scans OS-data structures instead just checks for
    existence of l:AsimCDFS)
  - fixed some inconsistencies in this README.

  Version 1.2, 16-May-1997
  - renamed from "DiskID2Asim" to "cdid2asim"
  - increased stack to 16 KB (WB-Version could crash with smaller 
    stack)
  - improved track name conversion:
    - non-alphanumeric characters (except "." and "!") at end of
      track names are removed
    - blanks before the ".." at the end of long filenames are
      removed
    - double blanks are converted to a single one
  - renamed option DISKIDPATH to CDIDPATH

  Version 1.1, 3-Sep-1996
  - uses more sophisticated algorithm to create unique filenames
  - no more insists on tracks named "Track.#?" and therefor
    can be applied multiple times (if the DiskID-file has been
    modified)
  - removes only whole words from long names
  - checks if "l:AsimCDFS" is available
  - added RESET option

  Version 1.0, 2-Sep-1996
  - initial release
