I think ices 0.23 generally writes the cue file to /tmp/ices.cue. The cue file 
also lists the full path and filename of what is currently playing. So 
another useful thing is to call vorbiscomment in your php script and get any 
additional comment information that ices doesn't write explicitly to the cue 
file. Alternatively there are some php id3 reading classes if your source 
files are mp3 instead...try googling for "php id3 class".

I don't believe ices2 writes a cue file.
