Rip audio tracks from CDs
The following little script will help you if you not only want to grab a few audio tracks but whole CDs in one go:
cddrive=/dev/disk/ide/atapi/0/slave/0/raw track= alltracks=`play $cddrive 0 0 | wc -l` #get number of Tracks on CD + one echo echo "Number of Tracks on CD is: " `expr $alltracks - 1` echo if [ "$1" = "all" ] #see if you want to grab whole CD then track=1 #beginn with Track 1 echo "Starting to grab the whole CD..." while [ $track -lt $alltracks ] #continue until all Tracks have been saved do play $cddrive 7 $track "Track$track" #Saving Track No n as "Trackn" track=`expr $track + 1` done echo echo "All Tracks have been saved to disk." else echo "Grabbing following tracks: $*" for each do play $cddrive 7 $each "Track$each" #Saving Track No n as "Trackn" done fi
However, there is no error handling, so type carefully or implement one yourself. Note also that you may find it easier to simply use Marco Nellisen’s excellent CDDA filesystem driver, which makes CD ripping completely unnecessary under BeOS, since it lets you view the tracks on your CDs as if they were already .WAV files!
