Periodically someone asks for CD-TEXT support. I looked into it once but forgot what it is exactly. Anyway it appeared to be a non-trivial request so I left it for later.

Hopefully someone will have time to do that. It looks like there must be open source support for it, given the app list here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD-Text#Software

Probably the request concerned an ability to feed artist/track name from CD-Text  as an alternative for CDDB/freedb.

There is a SO answer that should be helpful in the implementation - https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/32385

> Libcdio contains a collection of command-line which are CD-Text aware.Specifically, you can get CD information using the cd-info program.
> For more information on using particular libcdio library functions, have a look at the online documentation.

https://www.gnu.org/software/libcdio/libcdio.html#CD-Text - detailed API calls.

Disclaimer. I came across that issue accidentally updating an RPM package in Fedora. I was using CD-Text in a compilations created for my own purpose, but it is IMO rather uncommon for commercially manufactured. Therefore, support for that is probably not the most important thing for Asunder.
