audtty - Control Audacious from the command line with a friendly ncurses interface


audtty [<-|+>ahlntV] [ options ]


audtty is a simple application for controlling Audacious from the command line. It is
designed to make common, simple tasks fast and easy to do. It is operated using arrow keys
and standard Audacious keys, to make it easy and intuitive to learn.


To negate a short option, use '+' instead of '-' (e.g. +a).
Long-options are negated with no-, (e.g. --no-read-all).

The keys for basic control are as follows:
| << > || o >> |
z x c v b

-a, --read-all
Read all titles and lengths on startup (EXTREMELY SLOW) (default off).

-h, --help
Print help message.

-l, --length
Show length of track in playlist (SLOW) (default on).

-n, --numbers
Show numbers in playlist (default on).

-t, --title
Read the title from ID3/ogg-tags (SLOW) (default on).

-V, --version
Display version information.
