Grip is a cd-player and cd-ripper for the Gnome desktop.. It has the ripping
capabilities of cdparanoia builtin, but can also use external rippers (such
as cdda2wav). It also provides an automated frontend for MP3 encoders,
letting you take a disc and transform it easily straight into MP3s. Internet
disc lookups are supported for retrieving track information from disc
database servers. Grip works with DigitalDJ to provide a unified
"computerized" version of your music collection.
Grip's usage is:
where the available options are:
--config=CONFIG Specify the configuration file to use
(defaults to .grip, relative to home dir)
--device=DEVICE Specify the cdrom device to use
--scsi-device=DEVICE Specify the generic scsi device to use
--small Launch in "small" (cd-only) mode
--local "Local" mode -- do not look up disc info on
--no-redirect Do not do I/O redirection
--verbose Run in verbose (debug) mode
