Ah, some feature requests! Well, request. Well... requests, but I've ignored most of them. I mean, do we really need a distributed YaRET? Is the world ready for that?
Anyway, the request we did feature is the spaces to underscore option. Though, I mean, is this really necessary? In anycase it's now there, so I hope you all appreciate the sweat and blood that went into this feature (cough, one line). Enjoy 2.0.8!
Well, it's been a while, but that's because we've had no bug reports. That is, until just now. Oh no!
Don't fear, we've
In semi-related news: Would anyone care to fix that one annoying bug left in YaRET? You know the one, the bug that leaves your work directory full of weird named, but empty, directories! Anyone who fixes it gets my Cool Guy award. I will even change the title to Cool Girl if that happens to fit better.
So, in anycase, does almost six months of no bug reports means that YaRET is perfect? No matter how tempting it would be to call YaRET perfect, I'm sure there are some things that can be improved, or even already broken!
But I can't find any! (Er, except for that outstanding bug I mentioned earlier). This means I need people to send me suggestions, bugs, whatever! It would even be nice to know if anyone even uses it, since we don't have fancy counters and such on this site. So far I only know three people use it: Adam (me), Marco (the original author) and Chris (the guy who submitted the SMP bug report). This is a rather lonely universe, so let yourself be heard: email .
Success! YaRET seems to be reasonably popular, and no serious bugs have been found after about a month of testing. Those that have been found have been squashed, and several minor features have been added. We also now have a screen shot , though it is is a graphic file (sorry console devotee's!).
One is hesitant to put dates like the one above on your web page -- fearing that this stamp may prove some fatal age upon the whole of the project. Visitors will come and see not the treasures within, but the bleak and stifling dust collecting on that date -- a prophet of mortal age.
But no such hesitation shall befall these authors. For a new release is here!
For those lucky enough to have used YaRET in the past, then you know a happy day has come. YaRET has been completely re-written (still in Perl) and supports many new features, and several old features even better. For the full skivvy jump straight to the Features section.
YaRET is a Perl program designed to make life easier. At least, the lives of those terminally obsessed with owning digital libraries of their music. YaRET aims to make encoded music easy to create -- put a CD in your drive, type 'yaret' and then a few minutes later, tasty encoded music is on your hard drive!
Here is a four step example:
I'm glad you asked:
The default values work well for most people and settings are stored in an easy to edit configuration file. 90% of the time you just need to type 'yaret'.
An unlimited support for plugging in any utility desired:
YaRET will look up CDDB information (i.e. Artist and Track names) and then allow the user to edit the information before starting.
Multiple concurrent encoders
The user can specify multiple encoders and encoder settings to produce a plethora of different output files.
Work on shorter tracks first
This super-advance (patent pending!
Customizable File naming
Any of the track's information may be used to create the final output path and name.
Auto-skip dirty tracks
YaRET can sense if the ripper is not responding well because of dirty tracks and abort processing of that track.
Normalization in both track or album modes
Normalization can be done one track at a time, or with consideration of the entire album.
Well for certain, we know it runs on Debian Linux. But since it is written in Perl, it should work on any Unix platform that supports Perl and the Perl Modules that YaRET uses.
YaRET needs these to run:
And these Perl Modules:
Ah a most eager guinea pi... er, volunteer just follow this link:
We also recommend our test subj... excuse me, volunteers visit the project page, which contains information on accessing CVS, mailing lists, etc... Overall, a very useful link:
