Welcome to ttoogg!

ttoogg is a Perl script which converts a variety of audio formats to
Ogg Vorbis, using tools already installed on your machine.  While
there are several programs which will convert audio files from one
form to another (including Ogg Vorbis), ttoogg has several advantages:

  * it is free: ttoogg is released under the GPL

  * it is a simple Perl script which uses the high quality conversion
    tools already available on your system

  * ttoogg knows about CDDB files and so can set the comments in the
    Ogg Vorbis files correctly

  * ttoogg can convert the ID3 tags in your mp3 file to Vorbis
    comments

  * it works on any system with Perl, mpg321, and oggenc, which are
    all also freely available

ttoogg?
-------
Where does the name ttoogg come from?  Well, I originally named it
`2ogg', but I did not like starting an executable with a number.  Then
I tried `toogg', as in `to ogg'.  Seeing the double `o' and double
`g', I decided to make it a double `t' as well.  This, of course, made
it `ttoogg'.

Requirements
------------
You will need the following to use ttoogg:

  * Perl (at least version 5)

  * mpg321

  * oggenc (v0.9 or better)

For fully capability, you should also have:

  * ogg123

  * vorbiscomment

  * mp3info

Installation
------------
See the file INSTALL for details.  For the impatient:

    $ ./configure
    $ make
    $ make install
    $ make clean

Bugs
----
Please report bugs in a useful way, giving a complete description of
the problem, what input files caused it, how to reproduce it, and the
version of ttoogg which you run.  Send _all_ this information to
<banjo@users.sourceforge.net>.  Thanks.
