Dear FLAC developers,
Thank you for your time and effort for creating such a great lossless
compressor and make it freely available to the general public. I have a
small feature request, which will make the life much easier for people
like me who are converting from APE + CUE sheet to flac.
The feature that I'm requesting is:
Splitting flac files either according to CUE sheet or even simpler,
according to time parameters from command line, WITHOUT decompress the file.
I think it would fit nicely with metaflac.
The reason for this request: As you probably know, many people have
stored entire CDs in APE format with accompanying CUE sheet. This setup
works fine in Windows using Foobar2000. However I have made the jump to
Linux half a year ago, and there is no music player support for CUE
sheet as far as I know.
I have already converted all my APE files to FLAC, and recently I
started to split those huge files into individual songs. I can't find
any tool to do the job without decompressing first.
