Bbb is a set of utilities for burning to CD-R and CD-RW media. It allows one to easily perform tasks such as burning the contents of a directory, burning an audio CD, burning a CD image, and copying CD media from the command line. Bbb is implemented as several simple tools, which may be used easily in standard UNIX pipelines.
CDRX is a menu-based Perl script designed to help you use your CDRW with mkisofs and cdrecord to handle ISO creation, CDROM/CDRW device scans and setup, CDRW blanking, and CDRW burns. It is designed to supplant the need for an X-based CD burning utility, to provide features not found in other Unix CD burning programs, and to be easy for beginners to use.
DJWrap is an effort to create an open format for combining several MPEG audio streams into one, without losing information about the original files and without disturbing the stream with erroneous or misplaced data. To this is added MD5 checksumming of each individual substream as well as an extendable data format which will, to the furthest extent, provide both backward and forward compatibility. It also supports both DJWrap and AlbumWrap files, and therefore replaces ALBWtool, which has been discontinued.
The FAAC project includes the AAC encoder FAAC and decoder FAAD2. It supports several MPEG-4 object types (LC, Main, LTP, HE AAC, PS) and file formats (ADTS AAC, raw AAC, MP4), multichannel and gapless en/decoding as well as MP4 metadata tags. The codecs are compatible with standard-compliant audio applications using one or more of these profiles.
Freedup finds and eliminates duplicate files by linking them, and thus reduces the amount of used disk space within one or more file systems. By default, hardlinks are used on a single device, symbolic links when the devices differ. A set of options allows you to modify the methods of file comparison, the hash functions, the linking behavior, and the reporting style. You may use batch or interactive mode. Freedup usually only considers identical files, but when comparing audio or graphics files, you may elect to ignore the tags.
