Reading the source is the best docs you'll get. Anytime. For any

Nah, just seems like nobody has had (or taken) enough time to write
docs. Maybe you can help here?

I actually got converted to cdparanoia (from cdda2wav) some time ago.
Can't understand why, but cdparanoia -Z is about 2x faster than cdda2wav
on my latest cd drive. And the cd in my iMac is so f***ing bad at
reading cdda that it actually needs _all_ paranoia, and is less than
realtime. This is the only bad thing I have to say about it ;-)
(Yeah, the speakers ain't that good; but the whole machine is smaller
than just one of my normal speakers).
