Cdparanoia is a Compact Disc Digital Audio (CDDA) extraction tool,
commonly known on the net as a 'ripper'.
Cdparanoia is a bit different than most other CDDA extration tools. It
contains few-to-no 'extra' features, concentrating only on the ripping
process and knowing as much as possible about the hardware performing
it. Cdparanoia will read correct, rock-solid audio data from inexpensive
drives prone to misalignment, frame jitter and loss of streaming during
atomic reads. Cdparanoia will also read and repair data from CDs that
have been damaged in some way.
