PostScript::CDCover generates a Postscript program that prints a CD cover and backlabel, with contents displayed as a tree of directories and files. The module ships with a stand-alone, ready-to-use script, pscdcover, that takes the directory tree of a CD-ROM as input and generates a cover from it. The output can be directly fed to a PostScript printer, but it is designed to be easily editable (should one wish to remove unwanted directory entries, for example).

Release Notes: The module grew into a fully-fledged Perl module and is now available from CPAN. This will allow for more flexible ways to generate content, and made the installation procedure more streamlined.
Release Notes: This release introduces the use of a configuration file to store default parameter values. The installation is made easier by means of a Makefile. The output now uses the ISO-8859-15 (Latin9) encoding as a replacement to Latin1. There are some minor improvements such as more sensible default values.
Release Notes: This release introduces the possibility to print color icons instead of grayscale ones. Also, CD titles that are too long to fit within the page width are now scaled down.
Release Notes: A new --mp3 switch makes the program read the ID3 tag from MP3 files and print the title of the songs instead of the filenames.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to print separating lines between columns, adds the ability to set a minimum width for the right-most column, and prints one of the side titles upside down, to always read correctly, whichever way the CD case is on a shelf.
