Musicus is a command line audio player that uses XMMS plug-ins for music playback without requiring a GUI environment (X11 does not have to be running). It serves a component of the Cjukebox music management system. Musicus can be either used in batch mode or an interactive mode where the user can type in commands to start and stop songs, inquire about song length, (ID3) tags, and more. Musicus is generally designed to be controlled by another piece of software. Both Python and Perl bindings are available.
