The CDDB/CDDB_get Perl module gets the CDDB info for an audio CD. The included script was intended as a demo for CDDB_get, but over time it has gained powerful features like the ability to write to a database, offline mode, HTTP mode (including proxy), saving in standard XMCD format, and writing 'lame' commands.

Release Notes: This release fixes an ioctl Perl problem on current Red Hat/Fedora (and possibly other systems). The default port is now 8880 (not 888). Support has been added for PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Sqlite (untested).
Release Notes: user:pass with proxy support (untested). The cache module uses CDDB_cache instead of CDDB_get. All files are saved in a local tree and can be reused from there.
Release Notes: 64bit updates: for now just for *BSD. Tested on OpenBSD. Minor POD fixes.
Release Notes: This release adds CDDB protocol 5 handling, which is now the default. You can set $PROTO_VERSION to an older version if you like. Protocol 5 provides Year and Genre fields.
Release Notes: Direct device handling has been added to cddb.pl (-c /dev/xxx option). There is a firewall fix with an additional "\n" (-F option).
