I really love the one flac per cd idea. So, I pulled all my cds out of
storage to re-encode them. I've run into a couple of general issues
I've done some comparisons between eac under windows, and cdrdao under
linux. It seems that after converting the cdrdao data to .wav, both
programs result in perfectly identical .wav files for the 3 cds I
tested. However, cdrdao likes to output a "toc-file" instead of the
.cue file flac is expecting. My initial instinct is to write some perl
to convert the format, but I'm noticing that the start times for tracks
generated from the toc file are exactly one second different than in
the .cue file.
This leads to 3 questions:
Any ideas on why the times are different (perhaps better discussed on a

Does it make sense for flac to accept toc files to populate the
cuesheet metadata block?
Thanks for any help.
