A FLAC-compatible cuesheet generator for Linux
CUEgen is a FLAC-compatible cuesheet generator for Linux. The FLAC format allows cuesheets to be embedded in .flac files by storing their data in the CUESHEET metadata block. The cuesheet itself is simply a description of the contents of an audio CD. The cuesheet can be used in conjunction with a .flac file to store a complete album in a single FLAC file and then retrieve individual tracks from that file. The cuesheet may also be used by CD burning applications to recreate an identical copy of an original audio CD from its FLAC representation and an associated cuesheet. As such, cuesheets are of great use in archiving, transporting and burning FLAC-encoded audio files.
CUEgen creates a cuesheet for any audio CD. This cuesheet may then be embedded into a FLAC file of the CD or distributed with a FLAC file to permit the original CD to be recreated.
