Take a look on:

where you'll find (amongst others)

-rw-r--r--  1 agc          3311 Oct 25 03:51 cdplay-netbsd.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--  1 agc         11043 Dec  7 07:16 cdplayer.c
-rw-r--r--  1 agc         45034 Oct 17 01:14 xcdplayer-2.2-netbsd.tar.gz

cdplay is a port to NetBSD of a command-line interface Audio CD
player.  Dave Burgess took that and (I think) produced cdplayer.c. 
xcdplayer is the X11 interface, originally from the FreeBSD port, but
cleaned up, bugs fixed and made so that FreeBSD *AND* NetBSD are
supported.  No-one on the FreeBSD side was interested in picking up my
NetBSD changes, or, more importantly, the bug fixes.  Sigh.


PS.  Whilst I'm here, could someone run the daily CVS update program
(today's produced a core-dump) and create some new tar_files, please? 
The ones in the tar_files archive on sun-lamp are a mix of 18th
December and 24th December, and I'd like to pick up the new SCSI
stuff, amongst other things.
