       cdp [ -h | -l | -n | -s ] [play <track-num>]
       cdplay [ -h | -l | -n | -s ] [play <num>] [stop] [table]
		  -s : Start in silent mode
		  -h : help
		  -n : No autoplay
		  -l : slow start (wait for init)

       Type cdp to start program.  Engage the NUM LOCK on your keypad. From inside  cdp  pressing
       DEL  on numeric keypad will display a help menu.  While running, cdp will display the cur-
       rent track number and both total CD elapsed time and current  track  elapsed  time.   Note
       that  total  CD	elapsed  time  includes  times	for  non-audio data tracks in addition to
       playable tracks.

       Use cdplay to use the non-iteractive version of cdp.

       cdp is an interactive TEXT-MODE program for playing audio CDs under Linux. It is based  on
       WorkBone,  which in turn is based on the modules "hardware.c", "database.c" and "struct.c"
       from the elaborate X11 CD program known as WorkMan.  cdp Display CD databases,  as  gener-
       ated by WorkMan. It also enable editing this information.

       cdp expects to find the device: /dev/cdrom . If you don't have this device, change to /dev
       and soft link your current cd rom device to 'cdrom'. For example, if  you  currently  call
       your cdrom device 'mcd0', then do the following:

		      cd /dev
		      ln -sf mcd0 cdrom

       Alternatively, just edit 'hardware.c'  to reflect the name of your cdrom device and recom-

       cdp uses the numeric keypad as a control panel to allow you to move track to track,  play,
       pause,  stop,  and  resume  playing of audio CDs. Make sure you have your NUM LOCK engaged
       when using cdp.	A graphical template is displayed to guide you. Running  times	are  also
       continuously updated and displayed.

       It is doubtful that I will do much development of cdp.  I extended WorkBone 0.1 to support
       WorkMan	CD databases. This program is a further extension of WorkBoneII 0.2 to support CD
       database editing.  Please e-mail any bug fixes or improvements that you might  have.   cdp
       works  with  my	Mitsumi FX001D CD Rom drive, but your mileage with other drives may vary.
       Only generic calls and functions are used as per WorkMan proper	itself.  Unlike  WorkBone
       cdp uses ncurses for displaying its screen. If anyone is interested in porting it to other
       platforms please email me.
