perl-CDDB-Fake

Fake CDDB entries if you have none

Sometimes there's no CDDB file available for a piece of music. For example, when you created a collection of tracks from other albums. In this case, a text file containing the name of the artist / album, followed by a mere list of the track titles can be used as a fall-back. CDDB::Fake implements a part of the CDDB::File API based on manually crafted fall-back files. I've adopted the convention to name files with CDDB data '.cddb', and the fake data '.nocddb'. For example, you can cut the results of a search at Gracenote (cddb.com) and paste it into the file .nocddb. For example: Birelli Lagrene / Standards 1. C'est Si Bon 2. Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise 3. Days of Wine and Roses ... 12. Nuages The track titles may be optionally followed by trailing TABs (not spaces) and a MM:SS time indicator (which may have a leading space if it's M:SS). Extra track information can be passed on lines that follow the track title. These lines must start with whitespace, and may not begin with a number. Anything that follows the list of tracks is considered extra disc information. For example: Birelli Lagrene / Standards 1. C'est Si Bon Original version 2. Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise Live recording. Probably incomplete. 3. Days of Wine and Roses ... 12. Nuages This album was recorded in the Olympia Studios in Paris. Multiple lines of additional info are concatenated with newlines inbetween. However, if one of the lines contains '\n' (that's backslash-n), all lines are conctenated using a single whitespace, and the '\n''s are turned into real newlines. A tool is included to generate a fake file from the names of the files in the directory. *WARNING:* CDDB::Fake implements only a part of the CDDB::File API.
