GETCD combines cdda2wav with various encoders. Its goal is to rip and encode in one step without creating any temporary .wav files and to have a simple command with only a few easy arguments to control it. It creates subdirectories and filenames for the corresponding encoding method. It also creates an cdinfo.xml file which contains all essential information from the original CD. xslt files are available which can be used to create .xinf files for xcdroast and to create .wav from .flac or .mp3.
