Generate postscript for frontcards and traycards for CDs
cdlabelgen’s purpose in life is twofold
o To be run automatically and swiftly from a shell script and automatically generate a frontcard and a traycard for a cd--usually data archive cd's. The traycard which goes behind the CD itself is U-shaped and the ends of the CD case bear the label of what the CD is. o To have a minimum of dependencies--cdlabelgen only requires perl. cdlabelgen was designed to simplify the process of generating labels for CD's. It originated as a program to allow auto generation of frontcards and traycards for CD's burned via an automated mechanism specifically for archiving data, but has now become popular for labelling CD compilations of mp3's, and copies of CDs. Note that cdlabelgen does not actually print anything--it just spits out postscript, which you can then do with as you please.
